Bodie Hodges Foundation


Our Vision is to give HOPE to families bereaved of a child by providing a range of services that support grieving families and encourage them to rebuild and remember. Through Bodie’s Bereavement service, we provide early emotional therapeutic support to families in their own home. We work with families who have experienced the sudden and unexpected death of a child up to the age 18 within Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland. We work with the whole family, including siblings for up to one year, providing support during the darkest time of a family’s grief. We can also provide a stay at Bodie's Boathouse to families residing in the East Midlands, and send out Bodie's Treasured Memory Bags, filled with grief resources to siblings across the UK. We promote Organ Donation and run an education awareness programmes in schools, colleges, universities, and corporate environments. We are proud to provide all our services to families free of charge.

Our fundraising target is: £1000

Gross monies raised so far: £432

Supporters so far: 59
