** We continue to offer bereavement support during the Coronavirus lock down. For details visit Service details April 2020 **
We ask that if you are at all able, please consider supporting us with a donation on our crowd funding appeal with Aviva Community Fund.
We have set ourselves a target of £5,000 with Aviva employees able to donate additional funds with a voting system and hopefully maximise funds raised. No matter how much you can donate, from £1 to £1,000. Every penny will go to providing support to bereaved children and young people within Swindon and Wiltshire. Ensuring that our service can continue to provide support during and after this terrible pandemic.
At Wiltshire Treehouse we support children & young people who have been affected by the death of someone important to them.
You may be looking at our site because you are worried about a child or young person you know. Or perhaps you are a child or young person who has experienced the death of someone very close to you.
Either way, you are not alone.
We can help.
