Short-stay retreat accommodation at no cost for parents grieving the loss of a child
When we love deeply, we mourn deeply; extraordinary grief is an expression of extraordinary love. Grief and love mirror each other; one is not possible without the other.”
About Forever Held
Forever Held was established in 2022 to support bereaved parents through the provision of short-term retreat accommodation at no cost. Built in natural surrounds, the retreat offers grieving parents a place of refuge and rest.
We invite you to come, stay, grieve, rest, and experience nature as you take the next step on your healing journey.
Deep love. Deep grief.
Losing a child is an experience of deep love and deep grief, as love and grief are closely intertwined.

The Forever Held retreat is a safe, peaceful place where the busyness and distractions of life are far away. It has been designed to give you a space to be still and allow yourself the time to grieve the loss of your child.
Each person’s grief is as unique as
