Our Aims

Our vision is for nobody in the UK, suffering a significant loss, to be left floundering or alone. Our website is for anyone- whatever their age, faith, and gender and wherever they live- to find the support they need when they need it.

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

We are working towards www.ataloss.org becoming the trusted ‘go to’ place to search for bereavement support whether that be counselling, support groups, death cafes, financial advice, practical help with bereaved children, or courses on bereavement support.

We try to ensure that the information listed about bereavement support is provided by the organisations themselves, so ensuring the information is accurate and up to date for people searching for support. It is important to us that we maintain these standards so please email data@ataloss.org if you discover any inaccurate information.

It dawns on you quite suddenly that life is never, ever going to be the same again, that the whole world has changed in a moment.

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.

Bereavement puts enormous pressure on families and the support they receive makes all the difference. That's why Care for the Family is pleased to endorse the work of AtaLoss.org.
