The Story

We are bereaved families affected by infant loss; striving to make a difference in the lives of people and families who have experienced the loss of a baby, child, or miscarriage in pregnancy, by forming a support organisation for members to help and support each other in their loss, grief, and coping with their own lives beyond their loss. Beyond being a PAIL community support group, Bear for an Angel aim to provide families with bears as a means of comfort, recognition and sentiment to their loss. We are a non-profit charity organisation and we rely on donations from the public to fund our Bear packages, and Bags of Love which are donated to hospitals.


​Our mission:

To provide an emotional support network via our facebook and twitter pages to ease the isolation of pregnancy and infant loss.

To connect grieving parents and families through our social media groups, with a view to allow members support one another.

To set up a local support group for families affected by pregnancy and infant loss, offering emotional support and a safe space to talk.

To provide our Bear packages, for comfort in times of sadness and grief, and to acknowledge a precious life.

To provide Bags of Love in hospitals, funeral directors and baby loss organisations.

To provide 'Acknowledgement of Life' certificates for families who did not receive a birth certificate.

To acknowledge each precious life lost.

To raise awareness of pregnancy and infant loss through events, fundraising activities, campaigns, and wherever possible.
