The Compassionate Friends Victoria

The Compassionate Friends Victoria (TCFV) is dedicated to supporting grieving parents, siblings and grandparents in the event of the death of a child – of any age or from any cause.

We understand the indescribable pain caused by this loss, because our support team members have each experienced the loss of a child, sibling or grandchild.

We use our lived experience to provide peer support for grieving family members. This means that whenever you speak to a member of TCFV’s volunteer support team, you will be speaking to a person who has common experiences to you.

We provide a range of support services and activities to help you cope with your grief.
