After the loss of a loved one, it is important to know that someone cares and has not forgotten about YOU or the significance of the one you lost. Our Bereavement Volunteers maintain regular contact with families for a period of 13 months after a loss by phone calls, cards and notes on special remembrance days.
As with Grief Support, we will also be consolidating the volunteer info down to one page please. Find the information below:
