The sudden loss of a child is one of the most unimaginable pains a family can experience. Every year in Ireland children and young people die suddenly, unexpectedly and often without explanation. That is why FirstLight are here. FirstLight offers professional support and information, and promotes research into the sudden, unexpected, often unexplained death of a child. FirstLight is here to support the parents and families who have lost a child, regardless of the circumstances. We provide professional and qualified care, compassion, and professional support to bereaved parents and families in their darkest hour. We know the darkness that consumes anyone who loses a child. We’ve been there. And for 35 years we’ve been helping people through those darkest moments, helping them find the first flicker of hope......the FirstLight. Through understanding their grieving process and receiving help in dealing with bereavement from appropriately trained professionals, families can learn to live with their grief and begin rebuilding their lives.
