Description:

2wish supports anyone affected by the sudden and unexpected death of a child or young person aged 25 and under. * Families – We support the whole family, not just the immediate family, to ensure that every family member who is affected by the loss of the child or young person is supported and able to access our support and services. * Individuals – We don’t just support families. We feel it is important to ensure anyone affected by the sudden death of a child or young person is supported as and when they need to be. * Witnesses – Sadly, members of the public often witness, or are the first person to find a young person after they have died and it is a traumatic and scary experience. We will offer support to those witnesses and ensure they are supported to process their experience and feelings around the death. * Professionals – It may be assumed that because a professional encounters death as part of their job role, they are ‘used to it’ and it ‘doesn’t affect them’. However, we know this is not necessarily the case. We provide support to any professional who has ever been affected by the sudden and unexpected death of a child or young person. * Historic deaths – We don’t put a time frame on bereavement and loss. Anyone affected by the sudden death of a child or young person, even if the death occurred many years ago, can access our support and services. 2wish will support: * The family of a child or young adult who has died suddenly or unexpectedly — A child is someone under the age of 18 and a young adult is aged 25 years and under. * The child or young person who has died must be Welsh, must have resided in Wales or the death must have occurred in Wales.
