A Caring Place,
a Listening Space

We’re here for your child

Sadness that consumes. Confusion, anger and very real fear. Children and young people aged 4 to 18 years, who are affected by loss through death, separation or divorce, can so easily lose themselves in a sea of confused emotions. This is where we come in – providing a professional, safe, accepting and compassionate listening service to help your child work through his or her feelings.

We offer support in a safe place where children can share their experience of loss through death, separation or divorce.
How can we help your child?

Our Dream Build

A Brighter future for bereaved and grieving children

This is the only Centre of its kind in Ireland.  Since we were founded in 2009, we’ve supported more than 1,500 children, and the demand for our services continues to grow, to the point where we now have a waiting list of over 300. To meet this demand, we urgently need to relocate to new premises to help a greater number of children and young people and train others in this important work.

In February 2020, we were informed that the Ladies Residence on the John Henry Newman campus at Mary Immaculate College has been gifted to the Children’s Grief Centre and were delighted and massively grateful to receive the donation of this superb building which is the right size and can be adapted to meet this exacting brief.

We have a very child-centric design and will have a range of support rooms tailored to specific age groups’ needs. It will also have a small library extension into the tranquil memory garden at the rear of the building that waiting parents can use; and will have all of the support, training and administrative spaces needed to support the Centres ongoing work.

Olive’s Story

“Children who are bereaved from death, separation, divorce, they will often need somewhere they can go and can be heard themselves. What I have seen with my children is they go in to see Helen, they would sit down and talk about themselves mainly, do drawings and express emotions.

They are stronger children as a result of that I do believe….”
