A Northampton Charity Providing Support And Assistance to Bereaved Families Who Have Lost A Child Of Any Age.


Children Are Butterflies is a Northampton based charity. We offer practical and financial support when arranging a funeral that was probably not expected and not planned for, and more importantly, emotional support through an established network of parents and families who have suffered similar losses. It may be a lonely time, but with Children Are Butterflies ...


“You Are Not Alone”


Our Charity Objectives


Children Are Butterflies work for the public benefit to relieve some of the burden to families in times of emotional and financial hardship following the death of a child.


Our principal objectives are:

  1. The provision of financial relief to families in the UK who are in the unfortunate position of having to organise the funeral of a child. This relief comes in the form of Funeral Disbursements Grants.

  2. Promotion of the Charity and the work we do, to increase the awareness and understanding of the plight that bereaved families find themselves in, particularly to Funeral and Health Professionals.

  3. To build a “Butterfly Community” and encourage mutual support through frank and open discussion between families with similar experiences, in a safe and welcoming environment.
