Our Vision is to give HOPE to families bereaved of a child by providing a range of services that support grieving families and encourage them to rebuild and remember.
2020 is the perfect time to think about making us your Charity of Year. We work closely with many businesses of many sizes. We love to welcome new businesses to Team Bodie who share our values and we promise that you will also benefit from offering your support to us. We work in different ways with different businesses. Some offer us services and others take on exciting fundraising challenges to support the work that we do.
Grieve in your own way
There are no rules to how each of us will grieve or what we should do to continue to live each day without our precious children. We all face the most shocking event in our own way, I stood still, I looked at the horror of grief in the face and I was broken. Bodie’s Dad faced his grief with activity, he did not stand still, in fact, he did everything he could to not stand still. He grieved by moving, by honouring, by talking and by setting up the Bodie Hodges Foundation. As a couple, we somehow managed to respect how we both needed to grieve and support each other with the space we needed to grieve in our own way.
Where else can I find Support?
Each bereaved parent needs to find support that works for them, there are no rules to grief or about getting support. Here are a few links to other organisations who offer bereavement support. If you live in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and are newly bereaved have a look at Bodie’s Bereavement Service.
