Practical Support

Having suffered a bereavement, naturally you will not feel at your best to handle all aspects of life.

We understand that suffering a bereavement is traumatic enough but often a bereavement can result in secondary losses. This can be financial with the loss of income and that can add extra stress, especially if you have children.

These problems can be a result of a number of reasons such as taking time off work, losing a partner whose income you depended on or due to a sudden and unexpected death. Financial struggles can relate to a number of different things but not limited to funeral cost, mortgage/rent arrears, utility bills, exepected costs or general purchase of household goods and groceries.

If you are suffering financial hardship as a result of a bereavement then we may be able to help.

Examples of what we’ve previously helped with are:

  • Mortgage/Rental Arrears
  • Gas/Electric/Water Arrears
  • Council Tax
  • Funeral Costs
  • Headstones
  • Mobile Phone Bills
  • Supermarket Gift Cards

Respite Breaks

After the death of a loved one, a short break away can be invaluable.

It allows family time to reintegrate and spend some much needed time together in a different environment.

Our respite breaks can be anything from a week’s holiday, a couple of days away, a day out to a concert or football match, or something as simple as a trip to the cinema… Our respite breaks are chosen by you, for you and your family.
