Assistance With Funeral Expenses

9th August 2019

Following the long awaited news of the launch of the new Government Children’s Funeral Fund we now find that the requirement for financial assistance has been vastly reduced and in some cases eliminated.

With this is in mind Children Are Butterflies will not be accepting any further applications for assistance, and would ask for no further donations whilst we determine the future.

We thank all our long standing supporters for their continued support, once we have decided how our funds can be put to the best possible use in the future, we will make a separate announcement.

More details on the Childrens Funeral Fund can be found here – Support for child funeral costs (Children’s Funeral Fund for England)
Similar funds exist in Scotland and Wales, we have no details of any such fund yet in Northern Ireland.
