Rosabel’s Room-To-Heal Fund
Rosabel's Room-to-Heal Fund is part of the Rosabel’s Rooms project which was launched following the death of Rosabel who was 16 months. It will provide financial support as an immediate response to the loss of a child and is now open for application.
The purpose of Rosabel's Room-to-Heal Fund is to help ease parental financial loss following the death of a child (for example, to help cover time away from employment, help cover funeral costs etc ) or to help pay for a break away for parents to give them time to cope with their bereavement.
Criteria for Application
Applications are open to parents resident in Ireland whose child has died since 5th January 2016 and whose child was aged 0-18 years (inc) at the time of death.
One application per family will be accepted.
Exclusions for Application
Unfortunately, funding is not available for cases of stillbirth, pregnancy loss or miscarriage. We are happy to put you in touch with organisations that provide help in these circumstances. Please contact us for more information of assistance available in your area.
We wish to support parents directly so cannot receive applications from other family members, associates etc of the child. Please see our website www.bereaved.ie should you need help in coping with your loss.
All funding available will come from the Rosabel's Room-to-Heal fund, which is made up of voluntary donations and support for the Rosabel’s Rooms project.
Parents can apply for funding of up to a maximum of €1,500 and payment, if approved, will be made direct to the applicant.
Process of Application
Applications can only be accepted on the Rosabel's Room-to-Heal form.
Completed forms can only be accepted by post and must be accompanied by a signed letter from the family GP or other medical notary.
