The difference your Trust or Foundation support will make
Bereavement support has never been more needed. Calls to our helpline over the past year have doubled with people struggling to cope with their grief exacerbated by the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Without intervention, unresolved and complicated grief can lead to a number of long-term mental and physical illnesses such as anxiety and depression.
Get in touch if you would like to know more about the difference your Trust or Foundation can make to bereaved people across Scotland.
Our range of counselling, listening and advice services are designed to improve mental health and activate an individual’s own coping strategies.
Our community-based groups can help adults who feel lonely and isolated meet others in informal settings to share their grief experiences and issues.
Bereaved people can learn new coping strategies and receive advice on how they can use families, neighbours and local people to build stronger local support networks for themselves.
