Online Support

Our dedicated online support groups are available for you to access when you feel it is appropriate for you. You can use this service to talk online with our volunteers, other members and parents to find support, understanding and information.

This is a Private Group service and all members are asked to answer the membership questions before being accepted. This is to ensure the integrity of the group.

All our volunteers are bereaved parents themselves and are there to:

  • Listen and care when you need someone to talk to

  • Offer emotional support and an opportunity to talk through your feelings or have questions

  • Put you in touch, where possible, with your nearest local or group support or other peer to peer support

  • Supply supportive information, events or leaflets by email or post

  • Signpost you to other services and useful sources of information.

 

These are private, closed groups on Facebook and they function a bit like a ‘virtual’ support group. You can talk to other parents via posts. 

 

They are safe groups and often newly bereaved parents move between them. Our hope is that these groups will offer you support, encouragement, and friendship.

 

To join, please contact the moderator for our groups. You can do this by messaging Gemma directly on our Facebook page and ask to join our groups or by emailing Gemma at oscarswishfoundation@gmail.com and specifying which group you feel is best for your needs.
