New website for bereaved parents

A new website has been launched to provide information and support for bereaved parents and whānau.

Whetūrangitia is a cross-government collaboration that brings together information and resources for those that have been affected by the death of a baby or child.

It is estimated that 1,000 Kiwi families are impacted by the death of a child each year. The website helps these families find out about available support, practical information, and the financial entitlements they may be eligible for.
