The Loss Foundation is the only UK charity dedicated solely to providing bereavement support following the loss of a loved one to cancer, whether that be spouses, family members, friends or colleagues. Also being offered is specialist support for anyone who has lost someone to Covid-19. 

The charity offers in-person support in London in the form of bereavement support groups and other supportive social events and bereavement information on our website to support those that fall out of our support group catchment area.

Their Connect Project has been designed to connect individuals to someone who 'gets it' and with whom they can talk on the phone.  You can be based anywhere in the UK to benefit. They use participant information (register on-line) to match you one-to-one with someone with a similar loss, who we think will be able to understand and meaningfully empathise with what you are going through, creating a space for mutual support. Participation is free and voluntary. The Loss Foundation provides guidance for getting the conversation started, and check-in with them to see how they are doing. Note: contact between participants is not supervised, and is suited to people who are able to be involved in mutual peer support.
