Some 2,000 families every year in Ireland experience the death of a son or daughter. Anam Cara has been supporting bereaved parents and their families since 2008.
If you are in contact with any bereaved parents, please consider passing the below information on to them:
Anam Cara, the national organisation that supports bereaved parents, is holding its next Parent Evening on Wednesday 7th of September from 19:30 to 21:00 in Brú Columbanus, Cardinal Way, Wilton, Cork. This event is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age your child died, the circumstances of their death, or whether the death was recent or not.
Some parent testimonies:
I have some great, supportive friends and close family, but it feels sometimes that, until you meet somebody who has been through it, nobody understands.
I appreciate the chance to meet and hear how others are doing, to form on-going bonds with people in a like situation, to hear 'tips' about what helps in particular situations related to bereavement.
Shared experience is the best therapy I’ve found.
