At SIDS and Kids Queensland it is our mission to make a difference to Queensland families by providing free bereavement support and grief counseling for any sudden and unexpected loss from pregnancy to early childhood, regardless of the cause.
We are a charity who provide free, qualified and experienced grief counseling across Queensland (Brisbane, Ipswich, Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Mackay, Rockhampton, Cairns, etc) and a wide variety of bereavement services including support groups (facilitated by counsellors), after hours support line, bereavement therapeutic events and memorial services.
Our unlimited counselling services are offered on site in Mt Gravatt at the Todd Fremantle Centre or via telephone and online counselling services. We also offer free counselling services by means of external contracted counsellors in all areas of Queensland. These services are available to assist family members (parents, grandparents, siblings, immediate members) as well as work colleagues, friends and “the village”. Our team includes many years of experience working with children who are experiencing loss and bereavement.
In addition to grief counselling, SIDS and Kids Queensland continually work to prevent and reduce loss through ongoing education, awareness and advocacy programs across Queensland. These education and awareness programs incorporate safe sleeping guidance, information and techniques based upon the latest research to educate expectant parents, healthcare professionals, grandparents and mothers.
We also provide professional education programs, resources and training designed to assist emergency service workers, coronial works, funeral directors, child care workers and healthcare professionals such as doctors, midwives and nurses cope with and manage sudden and unexpected loss, perinatal, neonatal or post natal loss or SIDS in their environment.
