The death of any child is a tragedy. It is vital that all child deaths are carefully reviewed. This is so that we may learn as much as possible from them, in order to better support families and to try to prevent future deaths.
Some organisations which offer support in bereavement are listed below.
If you are the parent of a child who has died and have any questions about the child death review process, please contact Vicky Sleap, the Child Death Review Process Manager.
