Veterans Bereavement Support is a community-based organisation providing free advice and information for all those who have served or have served in the Armed Forces and Merchant Navy over the years. We also support the Emergency Services Family.
We provide ongoing bereavement care for families and friends of those who have served and who struggle with the passing of someone special, including advice and information on funeral etiquette including the loan of regimental or general service drapes for the coffin.
We are a totally independent community organisation that has been supporting veterans and their families since 2013
No one here is paid - everyone volunteers their time, skills, and talents to help others. We have been acknowledged for our services and have worked with many veterans and their families by regimental associations and other Armed Service Organisations.
We are totally independent and any funds that we generate are used to support our work and for training of more volunteers who reach out and support others. We have no statutory funding and rely on the donations that we receive through the loan of drapes and occasional donations.
Our Founder comes from an extensive family background in the services over the years back to World War One and this is reflected in the high standard of care and support that we provide to families throughout the year.
