Chaplaincy bereavement support
The chaplaincy team can support families who have sadly lost a baby or child. Chaplains can provide emotional support, end of life blessings and lead funerals. Please contact the team, or ask the ward staff to call the on-call chaplain in an urgent situation.
All families who have lost a baby or child will receive a gift of a book which we hope you will find comforting.
We also have memorial events, which all bereaved families will receive an invitation to in the year after their child has died:
Sunday 3pm 3 May 2020 – service at St Chads Cathedral, all welcome
Saturday 2pm 12 September 2020 – picnic and walk at the National Arboretum where we have a BCH memorial tree
The picnic and walk is a non-religious event. Watch a video to get an understanding of how the event works.
