The Charlie Cookson Foundation

Bereavement Support

THE CHARLIE COOKSON FOUNDATION CONTINUES TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT OUR CCF FAMILIES EVEN FURTHER THROUGHOUT THEIR MOST HEARTBREAKING TIME.

Sadly all of our families will have to say goodbye to their courageous child when their condition takes hold. A lot of the time the chosen CCF families are housed because of their sick child and they have to vacate their home within two weeks of their passing. This is a heart-breaking situation to be in, their benefits stop, they have no wage, how are they expected to cope?

This is the reason why CCF decided to further financially support our CCF Families at this devastating time. We have already funded one of our CCF families who had nowhere to turn, the funding gave them some breathing space to stay in the house they had created so many memories with their never to be forgotten loved one. CCF paid their rent and provided vouchers to put food in their cupboards to help them move onto the next stage of grieving.

Sarah and Christopher Cookson have built good, strong relationships with the parents of these amazing children, they have a bond that only those that have lived this kind of life can understand. Sometimes they just want someone to talk to when they are struggling or have nowhere to turn.

The Charlie Cookson Foundation relate to each and every family that cross our path and forever hold a special place in the hearts of us all at CCF. We are one big extended family that just keeps on growing and whether these children are with us on earth or with us in spirit we will continue to do all that we can to make life more bearable for their families, especially at their most difficult times.
