The Bereavement Care Network is an online network, created specifically for health care professionals, aims to enhance the knowledge, insight and understanding around bereavement and bereavement care following the death of a baby.
It enables professionals to share best practice, exchange ideas, share expriences, ask questions and seek informal peer support, therefore supporting professionals to deliver the best possible bereavement care by keeping users informed of relevant developments, research and resources.
The website is aimed at health professionals, and is not for parents or the general public. Access to all the resources is through an approved account, for which only professionals can apply.
The network is currently run by Sands and the RCM. There are several other charities coming on board as partners as the network looks to grow, including the Lullaby Trust, Twins and Multiple Births Association (TAMBA) and the Miscarriage Association.
