Financial Support for Bereaved Parents
The loss of a child is by far the worst lost any parent can experience. The pain and heartache it brings is unimaginable. And yet as parents, we have to step up and arrange a funeral for our child. At the most distressing and difficult time we are expected to provide the most fitting final farewell to our loved ones as well as cover the mountain of costs incurred. We may be lucky and have savings or kind people around us that will help, but for many, they are not so lucky, and let’s face it…who plans for their child’s funeral.
If you are struggling to meet those costs, or the cost of a memorial or headstone we can help.
Violets In Bloom takes referrals and applications for financial support from professionals who have knowledge of the bereaved family and their circumstances. This could include: Funeral Directors, Celebrant or Faith representatives, Bereavement Nurses or Midwives, Hospice Managers, General Practitioners, Local Authority Registrars, Hospital Bereavement Officers, Hospital Medical Registrars and others.
Referrals should be made to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will always pay the suppliers direct to take the pressure off . We may not always be able to cover the whole cost but we will see what we can do.
A Big Thanks to Our Fundraisers
We are able to offer Financial Support for bereaved parents through the many Fundraising activities.
We wouldn’t be in this position without the continued support of family and friends who give their time and energy to help raise money and awareness.
Over the years, we have been involved in everything from Fun Runs to Skydiving. All with the aim to raise as much money as possible to continue to help other who find themselves in the same situation.
To all those Super Hero’s out there, a big THANK YOU!
