Our Aims

Our vision is for nobody in the UK, suffering a significant loss, to be left floundering or alone.  

Our focus is on bereavement by death (including pregnancy) but in the case of young people we extend our work to loss more generally as this can have an enormous impact on the future and mental health of young people.

There is no such thing as ‘very few losses’. We’ve all had tons of losses and we need to take ownership of them. We can be overwhelmed by them and go under, or we can recognise them as integral to living.
