Due to on-going government guideline updates relating to Covid 19, Edward’s Trust remains closed for face to face counselling but we are planning a phased re-opening from Mon 13th July. We have done a thorough risk assessment and implemented the necessary safety measures to ensure that we are all as safe as possible. Our Covid19 guidelines for clients can be found here. Please read and adhere to these before coming to the building.
We continue to offer telephone support for our counselling and well-being services.
Please be assured that we will offer the best support to our clients that this new and different way of working will allow. Please be aware that we are still taking telephone calls (bear with us there may be an answerphone)

For 30 years Edward’s Trust have been supporting bereaved families
Edward’s Trust was set up in 1989 by Peter and Hilary Dent in memory of their son Edward, who died aged 7 of cancer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. 30 years later the Trust still continues to provide much needed support to bereaved families.
Edward’s Trust provides holistic family bereavement services supporting children, young people and parents across the West Midlands. We provide support to parents bereaved, or about to bereaved, of their son or daughter – whatever the age of their child. We also provide support to children and young people of school age who are bereaved, or are about to be bereaved, of a parent, significant carer or sibling.
A ‘Wellbeing in Bereavement’ service includes complementary therapies and respite bereavement care for bereaved parents and carers. Training and consultation for professionals working with bereaved families or families who are about to be bereaved.
