Reuben's Retreat

Reuben’s Retreat is a home-grown charity born to walk side-by-side with families in need, offering emotional and practical support to parents and siblings bereaved of a child and to families of life-limited children who face an uncertain future. We achieve this through tailored programmes of support specific to an individual’s needs including a range of therapeutic activities, counselling, drop-in and peer support groups, plus fun times, memory making and short breaks.
