bereaved parents

  • Anam Cara, an organisation that supports parents after the death of a child, will host an event for bereaved parents tomorrow (Wednesday 4th of April), from 7:30 to 9pm  in the Clayton Hotel, Old Monivea Road, Ballybrit, Galway.

     Anam Cara is a national organisation that provides bereaved parents with safe and comfortable forums where they can connect with other bereaved mothers and fathers.  

    The events, free of charge, are open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age a child dies, the circumstances of the death or whether this was recent or not.

     As well as face-to-face services, Anam Cara has produced an eight-booklet Information Pack, written by bereaved parents. The Information Pack is posted out free of charge on request.

     Also, on anamcara.ie, parents can watch short videos with testimonies from bereaved parents.
