More than 95%  of our income comes from voluntary contributions, and the money goes to providing our full range of services, including onboarding and training volunteers to providing digital information and support groups.

It is very important for us to plan these services so that we are meeting the needs of individuals living with bereavement, whether they are local or national.

To make sure our services deliver maximum value for the least amount of money, we regularly evaluate them.

Because of this, we prefer to use donations to fund the service that has the greatest need, but if you prefer that we put your gift toward a particular initiative we will gladly do so.

If you would like to discuss this further, contact our Supporter Care Team.

Providing long-term financial support allows us to plan for the future and ensure money is available where it is most needed, so that we can help as many people as possible who have been affected by the death of a loved one.

 

We are more efficient when we receive regular gifts as they provide us with a consistent, predictable income.

 

By receiving regular gifts, we can plan and budget more efficiently, which leads to better results.

 

A regular donation gives us a steady, predictable income, which helps us plan and budget more effectively, thus making us more efficient and cost-effective. By establishing a regular gift, we are able to spend less on bank charges, resulting in more money helping people who are facing the loss of a loved one.

 

You also benefit from regular donations. The benefit of a regular gift is that it is a hassle-free way to donate where you will know that you will help improve the lives of people coping with the loss of a loved one for the long run.

With your help, we can reach more people who need our support and continue to be a resource for people whose lives have been affected by the loss of a loved one. Your donation will: 

  • help us set up and run our Helpline, so that more bereaved people and their support networks of family and friends have somewhere to turn to when someone they love has died. 
  • cover the cost of our essential digital subscriptions as well as operating our website.
  • help pay the cost of training and onboarding our volunteers, ensuring that bereaved people receive the support they need when they need it the most.
  • enable us to offer our Support booklet to bereaved people, giving them information and advice to help them to cope as they learn to live without a loved one.
  • Develop more services and programmes
