The internet is such a powerful resource in helping people to find specific information. In the days, weeks and months following the news that our son Jack had died, I too turned to the internet in search of information and online support. I struggled to find what I was looking for and I found there was information in lots of different places.
My intention for this page is to bring it all together for you; to provide a central place with links to the online resources I have found useful.
I see this page growing and expanding overtime as more and more online information and support becomes available. If you have anything you would like me to add to this page that you think could be really useful for others, please leave a comment below.
