Support Groups!

Have you lost a child or know someone who has lost a child?

Our support groups are open to people who have lost a child at any age, from any cause of death and our last support groups for 2016 are:

Monday 5th December 2016 - Level 3, Glasgow Hilton, William Street, 1800-2000

Wednesday 7th December Radisson Blue, The Royal Mile, 1800-2000

I am looking to expand our groups in 2016 and I currently looking for areas that people would like to see Brightest Star groups running and also counsellors in those areas. We already have them in Glasgow and Edinburgh so I'm looking at other cities out with this.
If you would like to see a group in your area or you have experience in counselling, please get in touch.

All For You Jack!

Lots of discussions and planning today for Brightest Stars dream of a family ambulance to become a reality.

In his short life, Jack touched the hearts of many people and in his all too sudden death, Jack will forever more touch the hearts of many people through the work of Brightest Star.

You made this happen Jack 💙...
Love your very proud mummy xx

Thank You Liam & Elaine

When your child dies, “You are part of a club that you never wanted to be part of”

Tonight two of the most caring parents that I know, Liam and Elaine share the story of their beautiful healthy daughter Lucy who died from myocarditis. They are part of a club that no parent ever wants to be part of but a club, that they want people to be aware of. Liam and Elaine made this very moving video to raise awareness of myocarditis and the lack of support available to parents after t...he death of their child.

Men are often told to be strong for their family, not to cry, not to talk about their feelings and to keep their feelings to themselves. Liam talks about the stigma that dads face after the loss of their child and hopefully this video will let dads know that they are not alone, its ok to talk, its ok to cry and its ok to grieve for their child. It is also ok to ask for support and Brightest Star is here to provide this.

We are very lucky to have Liam and Elaine as part of Brightest Star and I cannot thank them enough for making this video for us. Liam and Elaine have been a great support to me personally and at times when I felt I couldn’t live another day without Jack, I looked at them and knew there was hope. It takes such courage to put yourself out there to help others and I know this video will help so many people in Lucy’s memory.

Please share, like and comment on this video so it reaches as many people as possible. Together we can raise awareness of myocarditis, child loss and support the families that are left behind to live without them.
