Winston's Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity and the largest provider of services to bereaved children, young people and their families in the UK..
Winstons Wish, the charity for bereaved children, helps young people re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling. By providing professional assistance before, during and after bereavement we help them to better understand the nature of loss and offer practical support and guidance that many need in order to cope throughout the grieving process. Every 22 minutes a child in Britain is bereaved of a parent; this equates to 24,000 new children each year learning to live with a powerful range of confusing and conflicting emotions. Bottled up, these emotions can have damaging consequences in later life for the individual, their family and society as a whole. Now in its 20th year, Winstons Wish has a range of services that include a national helpline for anyone caring about a bereaved child, supporting around 3,500 families and professional and an estimated 7,000 families each year. In addition, we provide online support, publications and individual help.
