Freddie’s Wish is a registered charity with love at it’s heart, wanting to help those who have lost a child of any age and offer support and care when needed.
This charity was set up by a family, whose son Freddie, was sadly taken from them in a tragic car accident in December 2014. Not long after saying their last goodbyes, the family desperately wanted to seek help from other people that felt this intense emotional and physical pain they were feeling, but no one seemed to be willing to help them.
Freddie’s Wish aims to educate healthcare professionals and the wider society in the importance of offering proactive support to bereaved parents to help them through the darkest of times. The charity is achieving this aim through a partnership with Child Bereavement UK. They will also signpost bereaved relatives towards support that may be relevant to their specific circumstances or provide support to the family directly.
Freddie’s Wish are also partnered with MDD First Aid to help fund first aid courses for parents/carers to give them the knowledge and skills to potentially save their child’s life. Sadly, Freddie ultimately lost his brave battle but the CPR administered by his Dad at the scene of the accident gave time to say goodbye to him. This proves that doing something in an emergency first aid situation is always better than doing nothing!
