throughout Northern Ireland

Anam Cara provides information, resources and bereavement support after the death of a child of any age and through all circumstances to all bereaved parents.

Anam Cara have developed innovative online video vignettes to give bereaved mothers and fathers the opportunity to hear an experienced bereavement professional, who is also a bereaved mother, talk about parental grief, the challenges and milestones. Ultimately these Anam Cara resources are about giving recently bereaved parents hope, that they too will find their own unique coping style and resilience to the intense grief that follows the loss of a precious son or daughter.  Anam Cara currently has 12 Anam Cara groups throughout Ireland www.anamcara.ie   and Northern Ireland www.anamcarani.co.uk

Supporting Parents after Bereavement.
