how Redkite can help

support and counselling

Whether your loss happened recently or many years ago, Redkite’s support team offers free grief counselling to you and all members of your family. Our professional, compassionate social workers have many years’ experience supporting people through grief and the emotions and challenges that come with it. We can help you find ways to live with grief and manage life.


If you just want to know there’s someone you can call on from time to time, who will listen without judgement or getting overwhelmed, we’re here for you.

support groups

We offer regular phone-based support groups for bereaved parents facilitated by Redkite’s social workers, with topics decided by those taking part.


These groups are an opportunity to connect with others, share experiences and talk about ways to cope. We offer groups for parents whose child has died recently, and for those whose have been bereaved for a longer time.

financial assistance

We can help to cover funeral costs and other expenses during times of financial need in the year after bereavement.
