Our Story

Freddie’s Wish is a registered charity with love at it’s heart, wanting to help those who have lost a child of any age and offer support and care when needed.

This charity has been set up because my son, Freddie, was sadly taken from us in a tragic car accident in December 2014. Not long after I said my last goodbyes to my darling son, I desperately wanted to seek help from other people that felt this intense emotional and physical pain I was feeling, but no one seemed to be willing to help me.

Freddie’s Wish aims to educate healthcare professionals and wider society in the importance of offering proactive support to bereaved parents to help them through the darkest of times. We will also signpost bereaved relatives towards support that may be relevant to their specific circumstances.

We are also keen to help fund first aid courses for expectant parents to give them the knowledge and skills to potentially save their child’s life. Sadly, Freddie ultimately lost his brave battle but the CPR administered by his Dad at the scene of the accident gave us all time to say our goodbye’s to him.

If you feel you can help us in our aims, please contact us via info@freddieswish.org
