Daisy's Dream - a small charity a day in May - Day Twenty Seven.

Welcome to day twenty seven in Week Four - Taking and Saving where I highlight those small charities that support those who need help in their day to day lives.

For an introduction to the entire series please visit

Daisy's Dream supports children and their families affected by both life threatening illness and bereavement, throughout Berkshire and the surrounding areas.

The death or serious illness of a significant person in a child's life can be devastating and difficult to understand.

The serious illness or bereavement of someone close, can have a major impact on children's home life, school life and friendships.

Parents may need reassurance about their children's behaviour, or advice about how they can best support them during such difficult times.

Parents, carers and professionals can contact Daisy's Dream for advice on ways to support children and young people. Their professionally qualified family workers can provide information and advice as well as direct support for children in their homes or schools.

They know that children can learn to cope with death when they are involved and given the appropriate opportunities to understand what has happened and to express their grief.
