The Laura Centre Coventry...
...serving Coventry and Warwickshire.
Although we live in a protected society in the sense that childhood death is no longer a common occurrence, the fact still remains that some children do die.
The lives of the families left behind have been shattered...never to be quite the same again..."why has this happened to us; why didn't I die instead of him; I'm so frightened, life has no meaning anymore; I feel so alone-nobody understands; I feel as though I am going mad; what would they be doing now; I just ache to hold her in my arms".
Children grieve too. Bereaved children and young people can experience an array of feelings, which can impact on their general emotional and mental health wellbeing.

Sunrise Walk 2017
The annual TLC Sunrise Walk will be taking place at the usual venue of Arthingwiorth (Nr Market Harborough) on Sunday 17th September 2017. This event has gained in popularity over the last few years so, to avoid disappointment, we recommend that you register your place(s) as soon as possible. You will enjoy a gentle stroll through the beautiful Leicestershire countryside whilst you wonder at the majesty of natures sunrise. This is followed by a hearty breakfast (vegetarian option available) and a balloon release.
