About the
Peer Support section

Parents who are a few years past their loss are eligible to participate in our Peer Supporter Training Program. The training builds upon existing knowledge and skills acquired by those who have experienced the devastating impact of the death of a child. Our trained Peer Supporters are referred to as ‘Parent Supporters’ and this is our organisation’s unique branding. Parent Supporters are utilised in many ways such as: supporting bereaved parents who have had a similar loss, co-facilitating support groups, being involved in special Memorial days, speaking to hospital staff, writing for the newsletter, helping at training sessions, admin tasks, Treasured Babies’ Program and Fundraising. Parent Supporters play a vital role in the delivery of our services. They offer a very special and personal service that can only be delivered by those parents who have directly experienced or been impacted themselves by the loss of a baby or child. Working in conjunction with our experienced grief counsellors allows the organisation to offer both professional and experiential knowledge support to provide the best possible service to bereaved families. Families can choose what type of support they want - support from a professional or a trained parent (peer) supporter or both.
