Barnardos’ Children’s Bereavement Helpline Service
Barnardos Helpline Service – (01) 473 2110 – is available from 10am-12pm Monday to Thursday to members of the public seeking information and support in relation to bereavement. The Helpline is operated by fully trained and supported volunteers.
Specialist bereavement project workers based in Cork and Dublin work with children from all across the country. The service offered is based on the individual needs of each child and their family. Our service takes into consideration the developmental stage of the child, the child’s relationship with the deceased, the nature of the death and particular circumstances of the family.
How do I access a service?
