How to donate
If you would like to support Luna’s work to improve the support for children and young people who lose a parent to suicide, please see below for a range of way that you can make a donation. Thank you in advance for your generosity, together we can help children impacted by parental suicide to find light in the darkness.
The loss of a parent to suicide can leave a child in one of the darkest places imaginable. Our mission is to help them to find light in that darkness as they navigate the complicated grief associated with parental suicide, which can include feelings of guilt, anger, shame, relief and abandonment. We provide evidence-based suicide bereavement training for people working with children and young people to equip them with the information and confidence they need to provide support after parental suicide.
Lived experience of parental suicide is in our organisational DNA. Our CEO, Anna Wardley, lost her dad to suicide when she was nine, and that experience led to her carrying out international research on the subject. She founded Luna to implement her key recommendations to transform the support for children left behind after suicide. In order to diversify the experiences influencing our work, we are forming the Luna Lived Experience Network of people who have lost a parent to suicide, which will inform and guide our work.
