3rd July National Bereaved Parents Day

National Bereaved Parents Day - Millys Smiles

She’s Gone By David Harkins


You can shed tears that she is gone.
Or you can smile because she lived
You can close your eyes and pray that she will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that she has left.


Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.


You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.


National Bereaved Parents Day was set up in 2020 after we realised there wasn’t a specific day that honoured bereaved parents from all walks of life. We wanted to bring together anyone affected by the loss of a child to show them that they are not alone.


National Bereaved Parents Day will take place on Wednesday 3rd July to raise awareness for all parents who have lost a baby or child of any age, and from any circumstance.

Please join us to help spread the message, keep that conversation going, raise awareness and show the bereaved parent community that they are NOT alone.

Light a candle to remember all of the children that lost their lives too soon.


Base 51 Centre for Young People

The Base 51 Counselling Service offers young people a safe and confidential space in which there is an opportunity to explore,  identify and understand past and present experiences. Our aim is help young people discover new ways of coping and to feel and think better about themselves and their lives and promote greater well-being.

Being a human being is a very complicated thing and involves all sorts of stuff including happy/sad/ easy/difficult/fair/unfair etc. etc. – its all part of life.

Very often, and for lots of different reasons young people don’t want to discuss problems with family or teachers – and that’s why we are here; to offer you extra help and support. We want to make sure that you’re not dealing with difficult issues that are making you sad – angry and unhappy on your own.
