Stars bereavement suite on ITV News

Our Stars bereavement suite is a very important part of Chestnut Tree House – providing a private space in a supportive environment for families to say goodbye. Stars can be used by any local family following the death of their child, the child does not need to have been cared for by us.

ITV Meridian visited Chestnut Tree House to speak to our Director of Children’s Services, Anna Jones, about Stars; and to Kate and Sam, who kindly shared Rupert’s story and explained how Stars helped them say goodbye.
