Our 2017 charity track day on 7th June sees Classics on Track for Children again supporting these essential charities. Please
take a moment to learn about the valuable work they do in supporting the bereaved.
If you are unable to attend one of our Classics on Track for Children events but would still like to support the work of
Winston’s Wish or Cruse Bereavement Care, please click on the links below to donate.
Winston’s Wish were the first charity to establish child bereavement support services in the UK and continue to lead the way in providing specialist child bereavement support services across the UK, including in-depth therapeutic help in individual, group and residential settings.
We were established by Julie Stokes, a clinical psychologist, in 1992 to meet the needs of bereaved children and their families.
Since then we have understood the impact of bereavement at a young age and has developed a range of practical support and guidance on bereavement to children, their families and professionals via a national helpline and publications for all ages.
Cruse Bereavement Care
Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies and work to enhance society’s care of bereaved people.
Cruse offers face-to-face, telephone, email and website support. We have a Freephone national helpline and local services, and a website (hopeagain.org.uk) specifically for children and young people. Our services are provided by our network of 5,000 trained volunteers and are confidential and free. Cruse also provides training and consultancy for external organisations and for those who may encounter bereaved people in the course of their work.
