Our Needs

AtaLoss.org hopes over the coming years to:

Increase our database of bereavement support organisations and resources on our website to cover all areas of the UK and types of bereavement.

Upgrade our website to provide a variety of bereavement support information and services.

Ensure the bereaved are made aware of our website through raising awareness among health professionals, the funeral industry, leaders of all faith groups, those working with children and young people, and any professionals supporting bereaved people in the workplace.

Develop training, resources and a new website hub especially to equip churches to support the bereaved in their communities.

 

To achieve this we need:

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.
