Penhaligons Friends


We provide a county-wide support service for grieving children following the death of a parent, sibling, other family member or close friend. This service includes, family visits, individual support sessions, memory days, social groups for teenagers, parents support groups and other family days.  All of this is provided free-of-charge and continues for as long as it is needed.

We also offer professional training and a wide range of valuable publications for teachers, health and social care workers and leaders of faith groups. We receive only minimal statutory funding and our ability to continue our work depends overwhelmingly on public support and goodwill.

By actively helping us you will be making a real difference to the lives of over 400 children and families across Cornwall each year !
