Winston’s Wish Helpline: If a young person you know is finding it hard to cope with their grief, and you want to help them, then give us a call. From parents to teachers, everyone and anyone who is supporting a grieving child can call our Freephone National Helpline on 08088 020 021. We are open between 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

In order to protect our staff, our Helpline is currently operating a remote service. Please leave a message on our voicemail with your first name and a contact number (with area code) and a Helpline Practitioner will call you back from a withheld number as soon as possible.
