Baby Loss Awareness Week 2018

Baby Loss Awareness Week runs anually from 9th - 15th October. If you would like to join us in helping to raise awareness of baby loss and how we can help to support bereaved parents, here's how you can get involved.

Buy a Baby Loss Pin *SOLD OUT*

You can now buy the Baby Loss Awareness Pin directly from ARC, helping to raise awareness across the UK.

ARC's Baby Loss Awareness Pins are now sold out. If you would still like to purchase a pin, click here.

Take part in the Wave of Light

At 7pm on the 15th October, Baby Loss Awareness week will end with the international Wave of Light. To take part, all you need to do is light a candle at 7pm and leave it burning for an hour, in remembrance of all the babies who have died too soon. You can also be involved in a digital Wave of Light by posting a photo of your candle on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, using the hashtag #WaveofLight.

Turn the UK Pink and Blue

Can you help turn the UK Pink and Blue this October to raise awareness for Baby Loss? If you work in or know of a building or landmark thats illuminated at night, why not approach it to see if it could turn Pink and Blue from 9th - 15th October. 

Click here for more information, including a map of buildings and landmarks that are already turning Pink and Blue this October, and a handy email template that can be used to approach companies.
