Father's Day can be an incredibly challenging day for anyone whose dad or chid has died. It can evoke powerful memories and feelings which are very personal.
We know this is a difficult day for many and have provided some thoughts and ideas below which may help you to plan your day.
Our Freephone National Helpline will be open from 10:00 to 14:00 on Sunday 21st June 2020 if you would like to talk to one of our trained bereavement supporters. The number is 0808 808 1677.
In the run up to Father’s day we will be sharing people's stories and some tips for coping on our social media channels. You can visit us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and join in the conversation about what your Dad meant to you, and how you are coping.
Dad’s who’ve lost a child
We know Father’s Day is also an incredibly painful time for Dads who’ve lost a child. The sadness and grief you are feeling is part of remembering your child but if you can, try to look after yourself. There is no right way to do this, just try and think about what works best for you. If you feel you need some extra support you can contact Cruse.
