Bodie Hodges Foundation

Bodie Hodges Foundation

We are a family who following the death of our beautiful 10-month-old son, Bodie, wanted to offer support to other bereaved families. The death of a child is isolating and lonely and it can be hard to ask for help or know how we want to be supported. We were blessed to be given time away from home to spend time as a family and to show our daughter that life would somehow continue and that out of tragedy comes hope. The Bodie Hodges Foundation was formed in 2012, to support families who have been bereaved of a child of any age and to promote organ donation. Our vision is to give hope to families bereaved of a child by providing a range of services that support grieving families and encourage them to rebuild and remember.

We are very proud that Bodie could become an Organ Donor, giving hope and life to 4 other children. As a foundation, this forms part of our mission to raise awareness of the facts of organ donation and we educate and encourage others to talk about Organ Donation and to start the conversation.

Watching surviving children and those born after the death of a child grieve can be as hard and as painful as our own grief for our child, so part of our mission is also to provide child and family centred services which support families in the early days. We provide Bodie’s Treasured Memory Bags to siblings and for families living in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland we provide Bodie’s Bereavement Service.

In October 2016 we were delighted to officially open Bodie’s Boathouse, which is a luxury, lakeside 3- bedroom lodge at Tallington Lakes in Lincolnshire. Families living in the East Midlands can visit for a week-long stay.

The Bodie Hodges Foundation has grown and gathered many loyal supporters who have helped us to build Bodie’s legacy. We are still grieving and use our experience to inform the services that we provide. We are excited about the future of the foundation, working alongside other bereavement charities and continuing to achieve good things in Bodie’s name.

Our Vision

We are an ambitious and growing charity; this is our vision and we are passionate about growing the services we offer to families bereaved of a child.
