AtaLoss.org is a gathering of people with a passion for encouraging good bereavement support. Most of those involved are volunteers who work part time to enable and enhance our vision. Do get in touch if you would like someone to come and speak about or lead training on bereavement support.
Rev Canon Yvonne
Richmond Tulloch MA
Founder & Chair
Available to speak about bereavement, faith and church issues regarding bereavement and how to support the bereaved.
Since I was ordained in 1999 I have ministered in a variety of contexts (rural, towns and even as Canon of a Cathedral) and I've spoken at conferences and trained church leaders in mission. In 2008 my life changed when I was suddenly widowed and I've since been passionate about supporting the bereaved and promoting bereavement care. I lead sessions on 'Faith Questions in Bereavement' as part of HTB's 'The Bereavement Journey' course, I help Care For the Family as their Chaplain for their 'Widowed Young Support' and in facilitating their 'Bereavement Care Awareness' days, and I work increasingly with churches and other organistions to enchance their bereavement support.
ListeningPeople Project Leader
Available to speak about or train in supporting young people through loss.
I have a passion for seeing young people get the support that they need and to find a voice to talk about their experiences. I’ve worked as a youth worker and counsellor for over 25 years specialising in supporting young people affected by bereavement and parental separation. I have had the privilege of speaking on this subject in the UK and other parts of the world and been involved in helping to set up charities that work with the bereaved.
GrabLife Project Leader
After the sudden and unexpected death of my fiancee in 2013, when I was only 27, I forced myself to try new challenges and meet new people, which restored my inner strength and hope. I'm now developing GrabLife - activity support weekends and peer support through AtaLoss.org for 18-30 year olds who, like me, have also been bereaved. I'd like to hear from anyone who is interested in being involved.
