The Bereavement Trust was set up in 1992 to support those affected by the Hillsborough and Kegworth air disasters. Our Founder, Reverend David Stoter, recognised a need for bereavement support in the evenings, which can be a particularly difficult and lonely time, especially during the Autumn and Winter months.
Today, The Bereavement Trust is a National Freephone Helpline, operating every evening of the year, without exception. We also co-operate with sister organisations on other bereavement-related initiatives.
Our services include a dedicated Helpline - Our trained volunteers offer comfort, support and practical advice to the bereaved from 6pm until 10pm.
Children’s Cemetery Gardens - In collaboration with District Councils, we helped establish Children’s Gardens in cemeteries, enabling grieving parents to derive comfort from special, less formal remembrance areas.
Our Sister Groups - We co-operate with other organisations, individuals and the media, on a variety of bereavement-related initiatives.
