The Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends (TCF) offers support to parents and families bereaved of a child of any age from any cause.

The Compassionate Friends helpline is open 365 days a year. Your call is always answered by a bereaved parent who is there to listen and offer support to anyone who has lost a child, grandchild or sibling. The number is 0345 123 2304. Open every day. You can ring if you are struggling today, need to talk, or perhaps would like info about local support/groups. You can ring as often as you like - like all our support there is no 'cut off' time.
