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”


What Do We Do?


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.


We aim to do this by:


  • The provision of funeral grants where there is a need for financial assistance.

  • Raising awareness of the issues of child loss faced by bereaved families.

  • The creation of a self supporting Butterfly Community for the sharing of experiences.
