Daisy’s Dream supports children and their families who have been affected by the life threatening illness or bereavement of someone close to them.
The death or serious illness of a significant person in a child’s life can be devastating and difficult to understand. It can have a major impact on life at home, school life, and friendships.
Parents, carers and professionals can contact us here at Daisy’s Dream for advice on ways to support children and young people. Our professionally qualified family workers can provide information and advice as well as direct support for children in their homes or schools.
We believe that children can learn to cope with death and serious illness if they are given opportunities to understand what has happened and the chance to express their grief.
‘I have found the ongoing continued support so valuable. Meeting other parents in the same position with the same problems has made me feel ‘normal’ again.’
