Since July 2018, we’ve been supporting numerous bereaved parents and families across Ireland in the aftermath of the death of a child. So far, the fund has enabled bereaved parents to take time off work, helped cover funeral costs and ongoing living costs while the parent(s) take time off work. It has also helped cover the costs of headstones and other memorials for children. Parents can apply for funding of up to a maximum of €2,000.
Applications: are open to parents resident in the Republic of Ireland whose son/daughter has died since 5th January 2016 and whose son/daughter was aged 0-21 years (inc) at the time of death. One application per deceased will be accepted. We wish to support parents directly so cannot receive applications from other family members, associates etc of the child.
Funding 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.
Please post completed forms to Irish Hospice Foundation, Morrison Chambers ( Floor 4), 32 Nassau Street, Dublin 2 accompanied by a signed letter from the family GP, medical social worker or other medical notary.
Application does not guarantee funding and we will consider every application carefully. Decisions for funding will be made through communication between IHF and the parents of Rosabel, as we work in collaboration for the Rosabel’s Rooms appeal. We will endeavour to respond to every request for financial help as promptly as possible. The fund remains open until December 31st 2022.
Please contact us on (01) 6793188 or [email protected] if you have any questions or need assistance with completing your application.
