FirstLight provides support from bereaved parents who want to help more newly bereaved parents in coping with their loss, particularly in the early days.
Befrienders are not counsellors but are parents who have lost a child and have worked through their own grief and have undertaken a basic listen skills course with FirstLight.
The befrienders are supervised and supported. This service is provided by phone or a face to face basis.
Phone numbers for this service are 1 8732711 1850391391
