We had the perfect family; two gorgeous children, twins, Jessica and Harry.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more and we had five and a half wonderful years until our lives were tragically turned upside down.
Our little boy Harry died unexpectedly in March 2009 leaving a great void in all of our lives. We found it very difficult to get the bereavement help and support we needed as a family and in particular for Jessica, a five and half year old who had lost her twin brother, there wasn’t really anywhere locally that we could turn to. So:
In October 2011, Harry’s legacy, “Harry’s Rainbow” was born.
Harry’s Rainbow is committed to supporting bereaved children and their families in the Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.
We know intimately the feelings of loss, pain, anger and grief, and the sheer devastation to our lives caused when such a tragedy occurs. We know how difficult it can be to help and support your children through their pain, grief and loss at the same time as trying to deal with your own.
Therefore we aim to support the children affected by the death of a very significant family member, such as a parent or sibling. We do this in a number of ways including;
providing resources, group activities, trips and family outings and access to our monthly Rainbow group.
We do not believe that families should pay to support their grieving children, particularly when they are also grieving for their partner or child.
