FirstLight provides professional and qualified care, compassion to bereaved parents, siblings and extended family members in their darkest hours.  Through understanding their grieving process and receiving help in dealing with bereavement, families can learn to live with their grief and begin rebuilding their lives. For 40 years, we have been helping families through their darkest moments, helping them find the first flicker of hope .... the FirstLight.

History

The organisation has been providing support to bereaved parents and families for 40 years and was originally know as the Irish Sudden Infant Death Association. The organisation was re-branded to 'FirstLight' in 2014.

Where Your Money Goes

Your money goes directly to the provision of professional counselling and support for the parents, siblings and families of children or young persons under the age of 18 who have died suddenly or unexpectedly.

The darkest hour is just before the dawn and the key strength of FirstLight is that we have a deep empathy for suddenly bereaved parents, borne out of personal experience. Because of this experience and understanding, FirstLight provides a light in that darkest hour, that First Light that will help support the parents and families and provide some hope, comfort and support.
