By providing opportunities to engage and share stories, our community offers comfort and care.
Children of Jannah has allowed me to find a common ground to relate to other grievers. I no longer feel lonely in my journey of grief. I am able to find peace in sharing my emotions as well as relating to the feelings of others.

A great experience! The training session gave a variety of views on the question of how to cope with grief and emotions, and explained there was no wrong or right way of handling emotions at a time of loss. I am grateful to Children of Jannah for delivering this training and feel better placed to apply what I have learnt when working with bereaved families.

Charity Fundraisers and Campaigns
As our presence has grown, so have our needs. It is due to the blessings of Allah and the support of our volunteers and supporters that we are able to help lift up those who feel overwhelmed by the grief of losing a child.
I am extremely impressed with the professionalism and services of Children of Jannah. This is why I and the Muslim Police Association of Greater Manchester climbed Mount Snowdon – to raise vital funds to assist in the development and delivery of new services. The charity now actively delivers training to police officers across the country.
