Alder Hey To Feature On BBC Show This Thursday
The film is focusing on bereavement support for families across the country and is being narrated by Antoinette Sandbach MP. During a recent debate in the House of Commons, Antoniette spoke bravely about her own experience when her son died and how it prompted her to seek more support and services for parents who lose a child. She was keen to focus on the support she received from the Alder Centre, highlighting it as an example of a centre offering the very best support for bereaved parents in the UK.
The Alder Centre at Alder Hey is a dedicated service providing support for anyone affected by the death of a child. The Centre offers bereavement, counselling and support services and the national Child Death Helpline is also based at Alder Hey.
