Discover resources and information

Tell us about your event or virtual event via this short form

From participating in the virtual Wave of Light, to holding an online Remembrance Event in your back garden, there are still ways to organise, hold and participate in events for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020.

 

In line with Government regulations, no official mass-participation events are currently planned for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020.
If you are planning any kind of event for this year, please refer to the Official Government guidelines here

 

Virtual Events are a great way to bring people together, along with family garden events at home or socially distanced community activities such as Remembrance Wall Displays or Ribbon Remembrance Displays, that don’t require group attendance or mass participation.

 

We have a range of great materials you can use such as Ribbon Bunting and Colour-In Ribbons here.

 

We will continue to update this page with any events confirmed for Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020.

If you have any event you would like to be listed for 2020, please let us know by submitting the short form above.

Please see below for events that we are aware of – please note this list is NOT exhaustive. We will add events as we are alerted to them.
