There are many ways you can donate to The Good Grief Trust. Help us to ensure that everyone who is bereaved anywhere in the country is able to find our national database to access support organisations wherever they live and whoever they have lost, and to try and make the difficult times a little more bearable.
Please help us, we appreciate every penny.
Our national projects will need significant funding to launch new pilots and drive our initiatives.
Over 500,000 people die in the UK every year, leaving many more people grieving and needing support. Your funds will help to;
- ensure our national database of bereavement support services is kept regularly up to date, with new organisations across the country
- develop and distribute our 'Gift Card' to every person who is bereaved in the UK, via all GP's, hospitals, hospices, police, funeral directors, registrars, care homes, clergy
- facilitate nationwide conferences and events to ensure that all professionals are aware of our website and the services it provides the bereaved
- organise community events for the bereaved, across the UK, to bring those who have suffered a similar loss together to support each other
- respond to daily queries on our site and all social media platforms, to assist the bereaved in finding the targeted support when and where they need it
- research and record stories from those who have lost someone close across the UK and the professionals who support them
- enable our work to continue on a day to day basis and help all those who need support wherever they live
