£6,000 for Leeds Bereavement Forum

Leeds Bereavement Forum has been awarded a fantastic £6,000, towards our work to develop and improve bereavement services across the city. Our charity was nominated for the fund, which is generously donated from the recycling of metals scheme, managed by the Institute of Cemetery & Crematorium Management

Leeds Bereavement Forum

Leeds Bereavement Forum signposts individuals to the most appropriate bereavement service either locally or nationally. We also provide training, information, events and conferences to people who work in the area of bereavement to support their professional development. Our charity works in partnership with organisations across the city to improve the provision of bereavement services and identify gaps in bereavement support.  As a key partner of Dying Matters Leeds, we help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement and to make plans for the end of life.

How the funding will help

This funding is important for us to continue to meet the increased number of enquiries we have received since the outbreak of Covid-19. These enquiries are from bereaved individuals and professionals supporting them in Leeds. “Leeds Bereavement Forum rely on charitable funding to enable them to continue with their amazing work and I would encourage both businesses and individuals to support this very worthwhile cause’’ said Chris Simpson, Bereavement Services Manager at Leeds City Council.

Jane Robinson, Manager at Leeds Bereavement Forum, said “We are absolutely delighted to receive this donation which will help us to continue to offer a range of support for families who have been bereaved across Leeds.”
