Here is a little about where the Big Give funds will be helping the work of the BDFA.
This year the BDFA will be raising funds for our Peer Befriending service.
The Peer Befriending service, which works in synergy with our core family support and is increasing our capacity to offer emotional support and to “walk alongside” families, building their resilience and reducing isolation. The project is led by a Coordinator, a bereaved parent appointed from within the community. As such, this is a community led and community driven project. We have a team of eight fully trained peer befrienders who are now regularly supporting other parents.
