Our Mission

Bluebell works in the South Cumbria area to provide free support for people experiencing grief associated with loss during pregnancy, the death of a baby, child or young person, those with fertility issues and families where a child has a life-limiting or life-threatening illness.

We also provide support for children and young people up to the age of 18 who are grieving through the death or anticipated death of someone important to them.

We hope to enable families to begin to understand their grief. We cannot replace the life lost but we can try to help people cope with the loss.

The Bluebell Foundation was formed in 2007 by a group of people local to Barrow-in-Furness who have been through similar or the same experiences. They felt setting up this charity would help people in the community through such a traumatic time, and help them talk to other people who have suffered the same or similar loss.

Bluebell provides support to families and individuals when they are ready. You do not need to wait a set amount of time. We are available for you when you feel the time is right.

Where Do We Work?

We offer our service free of charge at the point of contact to those in the South Cumbria area. We can support people from up the West coast as far as Bootle and we have worked with people as far East as Kendal and its surrounding areas.

If you are unsure whether your area is covered, please do not hesitate to ask us by contacting us. We can put your mind at ease and do all we can to help.
