You Raise Me Up’s sole purpose is to support families that have suffered the death of an adult child between the age of 16 and 25 in your area. We provide compassion, support and simply to be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through!”
We provide a 24-hour mental health crisis helpline, one-to-one specialist counselling and peer support groups – all provided by people with shared lived experience.
We aim to relieve to isolation of grief & bereavement, to build resilience and confidence to enable the bereaved families to move on with their lives – to thrive & not just survive.
We have provided these services since 2011 and helped over 300 families who remain in our care for as long as they need.
Our whole-family approach supports surviving family members and friends to work through the unimaginable grief and pain of losing a child. We support the whole family (and increasingly friends)
Our support is not limited to the cause of death or time of loss. Our support groups are open to bereaved families regardless of the age of the child or length of loss.
Our community café & support centre in Polegate is open to everyone in the community. As a safe place to relieve social isolation and loneliness while enjoying great coffee and amazing cake.
We would love the members of the Uckfield Chamber to get involved with events as sponsors or to attend and take part. Skydive, golf days, wing walking or just eating cake at the café – all details on our website. We look forward to seeing you soon.
