Our Research

Our new research has found families in Leeds have insufficient support following the sudden

death of a child. We are calling on the Government  to step up and #supporteveryfamily through the loss of a child.


We found that:


• Only 16% of professionals in Leeds think that child bereavement support is

currently effective


• 100% of the families who had contacted the counselling service found it

unsuitable due to long waiting times or lack of child bereavement experience


• Over 50% of professionals said they did not know who coordinated child

bereavement services in Leeds and 45% saw the need for a single

organisation to coordinate it
