Someone has died suddenly and support guide

Brake shop

A sudden death is devastating for children and their families. There is no time to prepare or say goodbye. In many cases the death is violent and horrific; such as when someone dies in a road crash, or takes their own life. In many cases the person who dies is a parent, brother or sister, leaving behind a bereft family. The Amy & Tom project is a charitable initiative by Brake, helping suddenly bereaved children of all ages through their terrible shock and grief and helping them to recover and lead full and happy lives.

The book comes with an accompanying guide aimed at parents, carers or support professionals, giving guidance on using the book to talk to and support a bereaved child.


Now available in Kindle & E-book (including iPad) formats with accompanying activity sheets.


Welcome to Brake's online shop - a one-stop shop providing fun gifts, toys, clothes for adults and kids, free road safety posters, and educational resources. Every penny raised is put towards Brake's work supporting families devastated by road crashes, and educating communities about road safety to save lives.
