Child Death Helpline

At the Child Death Helpline we’re here to listen. We understand that the death of a child is one of the most devastating events that anyone may experience. Sometimes the feelings of grief can be so overwhelming that they make everyday living very difficult – we’re here to help. Our dedicated helpline offers support to anyone affected by the death of a child of any age, under any circumstances, however recent or long ago.

Your call will be answered by a trained volunteer who has also lost a child and understands the feelings that surround the death of a child. We know we cannot take away your pain.  We do not try to tell you what to do or to offer solutions. We offer a confidential, safe environment where you can talk openly about your child’s life and death – first and foremost we listen. You can freely express your worries and emotions to someone who understands the day-to-day struggle who recognises the need to re-tell the story of a child’s life and death and will not wince or change the subject. The circumstances surrounding the death of a child are many and varied, and the child may be of any age. Every story is unique.
