Connect Group for Bereaved Parents & Carers

We understand that the death of a child is often an isolating, challenging, and unique experience. At times, it may feel as though people don’t understand what you’re going through, or how to best support you.

This Connect Group is an informal online group for bereaved parents and carers to meet and talk to others in a similar situation. 

With two Redkite Social Workers there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, support each other and learn strategies that have been helpful. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

We welcome all parents, guardians, and carers and encourage new attendees to join. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

Topics include:

  • Remembering and sharing memories of your child with others
  • What is grief, and what does it look and feel like?
  • Managing special days and events
  • Parenting – supporting siblings
  • The impact of grief on relationships – partners, family, friends etc.
  • How do I plan for the future?

We also welcome you to talk about any other topics you’d like to discuss.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent or carer connected to a child who was aged between 0-18 when they died after a cancer diagnosis
  • You want to meet and talk to other parents, guardians, and carers in a similar situation
