TCFQ Information Brochures & Resource Packs
A series of brochures available from The Compassionate Friends have been written covering many aspects of the grief process experienced by the family and those who care about them. All brochures have been written by bereaved parents, siblings, and/or grandparents and have gone through a review process, often in conjunction with professionals in the field.
All our brochures are available in print or soft copy, free on request to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. A resource pack of information and brochures is also available on request. Our brochures and resource packs may be downloaded from this website as well.
