Support Services

Use the categories below to find appropriate and local support.  

If you are looking for a particular organisation you can search by name by scrolling down the list.  It is alphabetical and 'local' organisations are listed first, then UK wide. Our aim is for these organisations to self submit their details to ensure they are accurate and up to date. Where they have done this, the organisation is marked with a tick.     

If you are newly bereaved, feel free to use our GriefChat facility where a bereavement counsellor will (confidentially) talk with you.

Also the "Tell Us Once" government service will allow you to notify more than 20 services and organisations of a death.

Aching Arms UK Wide

Aching Arms is a national charity that provides free comfort bears to bereaved parents to support their mental health and healing after the loss of a baby during pregnancy, birth or soon after.

We work with midwives in EPUs, NICUs and labour wards to help bring comfort to bereaved parents by asking them to offer our comfort bears to those who have lost a baby. The bears we give are a gift from another family who has experienced the loss of a baby, so the parents receiving the bear know they are not alone.

Services: Friendship support, Website articles and information
