The Child Bereavement Trust
Grief in its many forms is one of the most painful experiences that anyone can suffer. Every year thousands of families experience the grief of losing a baby, child, mother, father, brother or sister.

We believe families deserve the best emotional care in such a crisis.

Tamba bereavement support group (twin or multiple loss)
The Bereavement Support Group (BSG) was established in 1982 in response to requests from parents who had lost a twin. Dr Elizabeth Bryan, a founder member of the Twins and Multiple Births Association (TAMBA), recognised the special needs of such families, and with a parent who had lost a twin, began the support group, producing its first leaflet.
