Child Death Helpline

Tel: 0808 800 6019


The Child Death Helpline aims to provide a quality freephone service to anyone affected by the death of a child of any age from pre-birth to adult, under any circumstances, however recently or long ago. Callers to the Helpline might be parents, grandparents, siblings, other family members, friends or professionals involved with the dead child.The Helpline is staffed by volunteers, all of them bereaved parents.

They offer a confidential, safe and empathic environment within which a caller can talk openly about the child’s life and death. Callers are given the opportunity to freely express their worries and emotions.

They provide support not only at times of crisis, but also for the ongoing needs of callers over their lifetime.
