Whom do we help?

The Trust offers financial assistance to parents bereaved of a child. Whilst as parents we try to plan ahead for all eventualities, it is extremely rare that a parent makes financial provision for the death of a child. This is where the Trust comes in.

“The impact on the family whose child has died is immeasurable, the pain is intense and the life they knew is changed forever. The early days following the death of a child are difficult, with lots of organising to do as well as dealing with the overwhelming emotions of grief. At this time many expenses are incurred, work time is lost often with financial implications; to have to worry about financial matters is an added burden. Any support with finances for funeral costs and eventually for a headstone would be a great benefit to families to help them meet the last needs of their child after their death.”
