Our work

We're here to make sure that everyone grieving gets the support they need, when they need it.

How we support people

We offer support through our website, national helpline, group, zoom, telephone or one-to-one in person support. We want to make sure everyone grieving gets the help they need in a way that works for them.  We have a specially trained dedicated team of 4,000 bereavement volunteers.


Grieving people need a voice and that’s why we’re campaigning to make sure they’re heard. We’ll do whatever it takes to make changes, from campaigning for better business standards to improving bereavement laws – we’re determined to change how grieving people are treated.

We want to live in a world where grief is understood and supported. We equip, educate and empower society to make sure all bereaved people are treated with compassion and respect.
