Daisy’s Dream supports children and their families who have been affected by the life threatening illness or bereavement of someone close to them.
The death or serious illness of a significant person in a child’s life can be devastating and difficult to understand. It can have a major impact on life at home, school life, and friendships.
Parents, carers and professionals can contact us here at Daisy’s Dream for advice on ways to support children and young people. Our professionally qualified family workers can provide information and advice as well as direct support for children in their homes or schools.
We believe that children can learn to cope with death and serious illness if they are given opportunities to understand what has happened and the chance to express their grief.
‘100% of money raised by runners will go to charities, none on overheads. The majority of funds raised will go to our two main charities, Daisy’s Dream and No. 5. The remainder will be split between other local charities and Rotary Projects to included Reading Samaritans, Thames Valley Air Ambulance, Berkshire Vision and CIRDIC.’’
