We support children and young people after a death.
How a child grieves is vital to their immediate and long-term future, and that is where we can help.
Help us give hope to grieving children
With the right support at the right time, children can lead full and flourishing lives. We need your help to ensure that happens.
Training for professionals
Our new training offering is designed to help professionals equip themselves to not only fully support the children in their care, but also to ensure they look after themselves in the process.

Gary Melton of Novo Recruitment UK has written the below blog post about the death of his friend Paul, the support Winston’s Wish is giving to Paul’s family, and Gary…
"Winston's Wish is helpful, supportive and helps get over fears. I find it to be really good for helping me and my brother keep our memories of my daddy alive and enjoying our lives, not hitting out for thinking about the sadness. I enjoyed meeting other children and being able to understand how they feel. This has helped at school when my friend's daddy died."
"Winston's Wish helped both me and my daughter, Ellie-May, get an understanding of how each other felt, because I didn't have a clue what she [Ellie-May] would be going through. At first she was so emotional, very sensitive and now she's got so much more of an understanding and it's nice to see that from all of the help we got from Winston's Wish."
"It's difficult to put what Winston's Wish means to me into words. I often say that I have no idea how the lives of myself and my family would have been had we not been supported by Winston's Wish. I'll never know. But what I do know is that the charity was there for us at a time of crisis, and helped us get through that moment, and emerge united and stronger."
