Anam Cara meeting

Anam Cara, the organisation that supports bereaved parents, is holding its next monthly Parent Evening on Monday 12th December.

Clodagh Curley from the Anam Cara Parental and Sibling Bereavement Support group, the organisation that supports bereaved parents, advises that it is holding its next monthly Parent Evening on Monday 12th December from 19:30 to 21:00 in Dominic’s Community Centre, 60 Avonbeg Gardens, Tallaght, Dublin 24.

This event is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age your child died, the circumstances of their death, or whether the death was recent or not.

They advise

"If you think you know someone who might benefit, please consider passing the below information on to them. A parent told us recently:

Nothing is normal after the death of a child and it never will be again. Anam Cara helps. People may say that after, for example, two years you should just be able to pull up your socks and get on with it, but life is not like that when you lose a child. There is no timeline for getting over grief, it’s a continuous, daily thing. I would encourage any bereaved parents to come along. I know that anything that is unknown is often really scary, however, it's important people know there is no pressure or onus on anyone to talk at the meetings, just being there can help.

We would stress that this meeting is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age their child died, the circumstances of their death or whether the death was recent or not. However, please note that the meeting is open to bereaved parents only".

This event is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age your child died, the circumstances of their death, or whether the death was recent or not.

If you yourself are supporting or potentially supporting bereaved parents, you might be interested in viewing the Anam Cara videos at anamcara.ie/videos.
