Free Grief Resources

Our hope is that all families bereaved of a child will have access to therapeutic support in the early days but we know that this isn’t always possible and that often where we live dictates the support that we will be offered.

Our free Grief Resources are here for you to use wherever you live, whether you are a family, a friend or a professional and can be printed.

Please have a look at our factsheets, workbook and videos to offer you some support as you learn to live without your child. There are also useful links to other organisations who offer support to families bereaved of a child.

Grieve in your own way

There are no rules to how each of us will grieve or what we should do to continue to live each day without our precious children. We all face the most shocking event in our own way, I stood still, I looked at the horror of grief in the face and I was broken. Bodie’s Dad faced his grief with activity, he did not stand still, in fact, he did everything he could to not stand still. He grieved by moving, by honouring, by talking and by setting up the Bodie Hodges Foundation. As a couple, we somehow managed to respect how we both needed to grieve and support each other with the space we needed to grieve in our own way.
