Suffolk Safeguarding Children Board CDOP Bereavement Support Directory

The Suffolk CDOP has developed this booklet for parents, carers and families who have been affected by the loss of a baby or child. This booklet is a ‘directory’ of services that can offer you information, advice or support. Although it is not a definitive list, it may be a useful place to start. These services are available at any stage of a bereavement; whether recent or past. Many of these organisations have local offices or groups in Suffolk. Often, they are staffed by volunteers who have a personal experience of bereavement. They are there for you when you feel ready.

The booklet also explains how the Child Death Overview Panel works and what its role is in safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of children in Suffolk.
