A number of children die in Ayrshire & Arran every year leaving families devastated. Memories are Better than Dreams aims to help these families make special memories with their children towards the end of their life and following their death.

Having a child with a long term condition is very stressful for families and places considerable financial strain on them with parents often having to give up work to care for their child. This can make it very difficult for the family to provide the opportunities to make lasting memories of their child. We provide memory making activities, headstones for the child, special memory boxes, remembrance items such as necklaces of handprints but the help we give will be individual to each family and tailored to fulfil their wishes.
