STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
OUR VISION – ‘JOIN THE DOTS’
Build a Community of Care
To bring together all UK bereavement services under one umbrella, working in collaboration to share experience, help drive initiatives and build on the best.
Reduce the Postcode Lottery
We aim to repair the holes in the current bereavement net, provide choices and targeted help and support to all those who are bereaved in the UK. We aim to reduce the postcode lottery, promote best practice in bereavement support provision and achieve a gold standard of bereavement care across the country.
To work together with other related APPG's
We plan to invite a diverse range of charities, organisations and individuals involved in bereavement care to join the Group to share projects, learn from each other and support each other’s work.
