Additional Anam Cara Resources and Support Services For 2023

Anam Cara facilitates online Bereavement information Evenings, featuring a bereavement specialist who will talk about the impact of grief on the family after the death of a child. If you are a recently bereaved parent, or a parent who has not availed of Anam Cara services in the past, this is a gentle introduction to our organisation and what we do.

Our resources include Anam Cara Podcasts, videos and webinars. These can be accessed from our website or drop us and email to
