Support for Children


Children are bereaved of a parent each year in the West Midlands.


Children between the ages of 1-19 die each year in the West Midlands


Families are helped and supported by Edward's Trust every year.

For 30 years Edward's Trust have been supporting bereaved families

Edward’s Trust offers a holistic bereavement care service to children and young people following the death of a parent, carer or sibling in Birmingham and the West Midlands. Through this unique support, young lives that have been devastated by death are rebuilt and nurtured to ensure they reach their full potential. 

Edward’s Trust offers a range of support for bereaved children including one to one counselling, art therapy, attending support groups at our bereavement centre, accessing social activities with other children surviving bereavement and support at school. The outreach work undertaken in schools makes the service accessible to children who, for family or social reasons, would find it difficult to come to our centre. We organise a range of social and therapeutic activities and groups for bereaved children. Without the right kind of support bereaved children and young people are vulnerable to long term difficulties which can impact on them physically as well as psychologically.
