Bereavement Support for Parents and Adults
The devastating grief and sorrow which accompanies the death of a child can be extremely debilitating. Grief has a huge impact on a bereaved adult, affecting them on a personal, social, psychological, physical and spiritual level.
Support for Parents Supporting Bereaved Children
The majority of carers will be bereaved themselves. Our support acknowledges the carers’ grief and enables them to help their children understand and manage their grief.
At Edward’s Trust we recognise this is a life long journey and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. The bereavement support we offer is gentle and accepting of the person, allowing parents to be honest and patient with themselves whilst supporting them through this unique journey.

Services for Adults
Counselling can be 1-1 or as a couple. For parents bereaved of a child of any age, in any circumstance. Also for adults affected by the death of a child up to the age of 18 years.
Pre-bereavement support and counselling
At Edward’s Trust we offer a holistic approach combining wellbeing therapies with support for coping with grief. Wellbeing therapies offer wonderful ways to support ourselves to relax and become more aware of how closely our mind, body and emotions are linked.
