Bodie’s House

Bodie’s House is a place where families know that they will be listened to and supported.

When we are faced with challenges, we all have choices of how we can respond and as a charity we decided that Bodie’s House, located on Braunstone Lane was exactly the right place to grow our bereavement community. 

Bodie’s House is an 11-room building with 6 therapy space, along with offices and meetings spaces for the charity. It is a safe and non-judgemental environment for the families we are supporting to come and talk about their child or sibling.

Our Promise

We were supported by the landlord who have us 2 years to raise £450,000. This was a huge risk for us as we are a small charity with only 4 members of staff when we launched the appeal.

We promised Bodie that we would do good things in his name and so we always believed that we would succeed with this goal. To raise money for a capital appeal, alongside donations to run our key services has been challenging. My team, along with our Board of trustees and many of our corporate and community supporters have helped us to realise our dream and we are so grateful. To be able to own our property puts us in a great position for the future ensuring that were financially sound as an organisation.
