Securing an end of life choice commitment
We believe that all families should be able to choose how and where they receive their child’s end of life care - at home, in hospital or in a children’s hospice. We were delighted when the government included children in its response to a review of choice in end of life care as a result of our lobbying efforts.
Campaigning to end child burial fees
We’re part of the Funeral Poverty Alliance, and we’ve been pressing the UK’s governments to help provide more help to relieve families bereaved of a child with the costs of arranging a funeral. Following pressure from Carolyn Harris (Labour MP for Swansea East), the Welsh Government announced that it would abolish burial fees for children.
Towards statutory leave for every bereaved family
We supported Will Quince MP’s campaign to make sure that parents across the UK bereaved of a child can take a fortnight’s statutory leave following their death. As a result, the Conservatives committed to introducing this in their 2017 general election manifesto.
