Bereaved parents invited to Swords Anam Cara event

Anam Cara North Dublin, an organisation that supports bereaved parents, is hosting its monthly parent evening on Wednesday, May 16 of May from 7.30pm to 9pm in the Carnegie Court Hotel in Swords,

The meeting offers parents a safe and comfortable forum where they can connect with other bereaved parents who will understand the depth of their grief and loss. A parent who attended a recent Anam Cara North Dublin meeting said: 'What I heard was so familiar to me, I felt less alone and understood.'

Anam Cara CEO, Sharon Vard stressed that this event is open to all bereaved parents regardless of the age of the child or children, the circumstances of their death, or whether this was recent or not. Anam Cara services are offered free of charge, one of the fathers who attends the group said: 'There is no pressure to talk, yet you feel supported by the other parents who know how desperately hard it is after your child has died. Like so many bereaved parents Anam Cara has been my lifeline.'
