Raise Awareness

OWF's current main aim is to raise awareness of the support needed when a precious baby's life is lost. Breaking the silence of such a "taboo" subject is vital to ensure that parents, family and siblings get the support needed to understand and grieve their loss.

 

You can support us in a range of ways:

 

  • Donating to OWF to enable us to continue raising awareness

  • Organising a fundraiser

  • Nominating a hospital, doctors surgery or children's centre to distribute our important leaflets and Love-a-Bear adults and children's programmes

  • Raise awareness of the work that we are doing by sharing our website on social media.

Fundraising Ideas

Fundraising is key to our growth and support program. We have a wonderful group of supporters that have raised vital funds to enable us to continue our support.

Donations

Thank you for considering donating to OWF. The generosity of our supporters helps to fund the work we do. Your help is greatly appreciated. Raising awareness is so important to reach out to those who are bereaved.

 

OWF is a local Registered Charity (1169892) run by trustees who have personally experienced the pain and emptiness of personally leaving the hospital without their much wanted baby or knows and has supported someone close to them who has.

 

Our aim is to raise awareness of the impact of pregnancy and baby loss and bring some comfort to bereaved parents and their families after the loss of a baby.

 

We provide the Love-a-Bear programme to hospitals for midwives to give to newly bereaved mothers, fathers and families. We also reach out to parents who contact us via our website, email and Facebook and send dedicated bears, from one sadly bereaved parent to another.

 

What your donations will go towards:

 

  • Leaflets to support parents, family and friends with information following the devastating loss of a baby

  • Information for parents, family and friends to understand the process of what lies ahead

  • Love-a-Bear programme providing comfort to children after the loss of a sibling, cousin, niece or nephew

  • Love-a-Bear programme providing comfort to bereaved parents after the devastation and loss of their baby.
