About The Loss Foundation
The Loss Foundation specialises in providing bereavement support to people who have lost loved ones to cancer; spouses, family members, friends. In response to the pandemic, the charity now also supports people who lose a loved one to coronavirus. Our mission involves providing accessible and varied support to people bereaved by cancer or Covid-19 and helping them learn to compassionately support themselves, carrying out research to learn best practice in grief support, and campaigning to break the taboo of grief in society. We are now moving towards creating a national pathway of cancer and Covid-19 bereavement support by reallocating some of our services online.
