When FirstLight is notified of the death of a child on our hot-line 087 – 2423777 and if the parents consent, our support services coordinator contacts the parents.

The purpose of this is to encourage them make decisions about their child.
They couldn’t control the death of their child but they can control what happens in the following days .
