What it does

This charity offers bereavement breaks for families who have lost a child. Their definition of a child is under 18, although this is flexible, particularly when the child was ill throughout childhood years. The bereavement lodge is a three bedroom, two-bathroom model, which sleeps up to six. They are happy to accept a mix of occupiers; some may wish to keep to an immediate family group and others may bring grand-parents or friends. It's equally suitable for a group of bereaved mums or dads to come for a bit of girl time or male bonding. There is no form required for bereaved parents, however, an authorised referral is needed which can be as simple as an email from a GP or a supportive charity such as brainstrust. The bereavement lodge is open from March through to and including Christmas. Applications are ongoing with no date criteria.
