CARING FOR YOU – EVERY EVENING OF THE YEAR
The Bereavement Trust was set up in 1992 to support those affected by the Hillsborough and Kegworth air disasters. Our Founder, Reverend David Stoter, recognised a need for bereavement support in the evenings, which can be a particularly difficult and lonely time, especially during the Autumn and Winter months.
Today, The Bereavement Trust is a National Freephone Helpline, operating every evening of the year, without exception. We also co-operate with sister organisations on other bereavement-related initiatives.
Our services include:
Helpline – 0800 435 455
Our trained volunteers offer comfort, support and practical advice to the bereaved from 6pm until 10pm. If the line is engaged, please ring 0800 9177 416.
Children’s Cemetery Gardens
In collaboration with District Councils, we helped establish Children’s Gardens in cemeteries, enabling grieving parents to derive comfort from special, less formal remembrance areas.
Our Sister Groups
We co-operate with other organisations, individuals and the media, on a variety of bereavement-related initiatives.
The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award For Charities
In July 2003, we received The Queen’s Golden Jubilee Award for Charities, which recognised the help and support we give to the bereaved.
