Child Bereavement UK
Child Bereavement UK works from Runcorn town centre offering bereavement support to families across Halton. All support is given free of charge, for as long as families need it. The charity helps
children and young people become more resilient and feel less isolated after someone important to them has died. It also helps parents whose child has died or those in the unfamiliar role of parenting a bereaved child. The charity also trains professionals such as doctors, nurses, police and teachers to feel more confident when talking to bereaved families, and operates a freephone helpline for families and professionals to call when they need support, information and guidance. Child Bereavement UK’s vision is for all families to have the support they need when a child grieves or when a child dies, helping them to begin to rebuild their lives after the devastation of child bereavement.
The Lets Go Stroke Club
The Lets Go Stroke Club was established in 1997 by a handful of stroke survivors, who never realised then that it would become one of the largest independent stroke clubs in the United Kingdom. They are a registered charity, working throughout Halton, whose aim is to combat the social isolation suffered by stroke, and offer support and advice to affected individuals, their families and carers. They are proud to say that they are run by volunteers, and have no paid employees.
Five people a week in Halton have strokes. The Clubs aim is to reach them, and offer them a reason to leave their home environment. They can leave their problems and responsibilities behind for a while at one of the club meetings held monthly in Widnes and Runcorn. The Club organise days out, two holidays a year, and own a caravan in North Wales for
