The idea grew from a bereavement forum representing a wide number of organisations including CRUSE, CLIC, Compassionate Friends, SANDS, SIDS, Child and Family Services Education and Health Macmillan Service, Hospital Chaplaincy, Hospice South West and Social Services. Specific service needed The forum highlighted the lack of child centered bereavement services and looked at ways of addressing this gap in provision. Statutory organisations were involved at all stages and included the social services, the education authority, health trusts including members of the primary care teams health visitors, midwives and general practitioners. Various projects within the county also confirmed the need for a child-centered bereavement service.
