On behalf of Anam Cara and bereaved parents throughout Ireland, we would be very grateful if you could help us raise awareness of the new online resource Anam Cara have developed in response to the challenging times for bereaved parents and their family.

 This resource can be accessed via the Anam Cara website and will in particular offer some support and solace to recently bereaved parents through the current lockdown and the recently announced restrictions on funerals.

Anam Cara has swiftly responded to these new restrictions by developing and producing (for introduction click on link) 8 online Bereavement Support video vignettes to help bereaved mother and fathers at this very difficult time.  These clips will complement the existing Anam Cara videos and information Pack, which were compiled by bereaved parents for bereaved parents, the new resources can be accessed on Anam Cara’s website home page  anamcara.ie  

The 8 short videos feature Brid Carroll, an experienced psychotherapist who has worked with families through bereavement and loss for many years. Brid is also the Chairperson of the Irish Child Bereavement Network. Brid talks about the impact and challenges of the intense grief and devastation the death of a child, of any age and through all circumstances for all family members.
