A Child Of Mine - Bereavement Support

What we do...

A Child Of Mine provides emotional and practical support to bereaved parents and families. We work in partnership with health care professionals to help improve care and support available when a child dies.

Family Support

A Child Of Mine offers confidential emotional support, information, guidance and a listening ear to any family who has lost a child at any age or gestation, and from any circumstance.
Across Staffordshire we provide 1-2-1 emotional support, various group sessions, days out and small financial grants.
We also offer groups (Free of charge) for both younger and older bereaved children who have suffered the loss of a sibling.

Sunshine & Rainbows

A stay and play playgroup, for parents and their children born before or after loss. Offering a different entertainer each month, light lunch and craft activities.

Our Space

A space for young people to build confidence through drama, humour and creative activities. For any family outside of Staffordshire, we can provide telephone or email emotional support, and signposting to other local organisations and charities.
If you would like to know more about how we can help and support, please do not hesitate to contact our telephone helpline on 07803 751229.

Children's Hospital's Bereavement Network

A Child Of Mine also works closely with the bereavement teams at several of the major children's hospitals across England, we sit on their own bereavement network as a parent representative which allows us to share experiences and work with the bereavement teams to improve their care.  We provide several publications for families and our material is supported by Birmingham Children's, Alder Hey, Bristol and Great Ormond Street hospitals and several of the hospitals within Barts Health NHS Trust.
