Winston's Wish, the charity for bereaved children, helps young people re-adjust to life after the death of a parent or sibling. By providing professional assistance before, during and after bereavement they help them to better understand the nature of loss and offer the practical support and guidance that many need in order to cope throughout the grieving process.
More than 100 children are bereaved of a parent every single day in the UK. This is the most fundamental loss a child will ever face. Winston's Wish believes in a society in which every child can get the help they need when someone close to them dies. With the right support at the right time, a child can face the future with confidence and hope.
Winston's Wish is now recognised as the leading organisation in this field and its pioneering model of family support has been adapted and used by many other organisations throughout the UK and abroad.
Now in its 25th year, Winston's Wish has a range of services that include a Freephone National Helpline for anyone caring for or concerned about a bereaved child. Every year the Helpline supports around 5,000 families and professionals.
