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
Ensure the bereaved are made aware of our website through promotional literature at doctors, hospitals, funeral directors etc
Develop our ListeningPeople project to offer training in listening to teenagers across the UK
Provide 2 GrabLife weekends per year for bereaved 18-30 year olds and develop ongoing peer and mentoring support
Develop our Bereavement Support for Men project by organic growth of social support initiatives.
Publish resources on Faith Questions in Bereavement, How to Support the Bereaved and Making Church accessible to the Bereaved
Continue to raise awareness across the UK of the needs of the bereaved and in particular, how the Church can respond.
To achieve this we need:
Please let us know of any bereavement service or resources that could be added to our site by getting in touch.
Please consider supporting us financially for any of our projects, generally towards our aims, or fundraise for our cause.
Or consider allocating funeral donations or a legacy towards our aims.
Please also let us know of places where we can speak or raise awareness of bereavement issues, or other ways we can spread the word by getting in touch.
Finally, consider how you might get involved... as together we can ease the pain.
