Ways to Give

As a registered charity SDB&LSS is dependent on donations from the public.

Please do give what you can so that we can help others in their hour of need.


Our service is currently free; however we do politely request that if possible, you make a donation, no matter how small, in order that we may continue to offer our support to others.


Your kind donation enables us to support those in need. Thank you.



Additional Help

SDB&LSS currently has vacancies for volunteers who have a little time and energy to help with various activities within the charity.  Some examples are promoting the charity, sharing leaflets and helping at fundraising events.


If you are interested and have a couple of hours to spare each week, please contact our admin team on 07828 263554 to arrange a time to visit our office for an informal chat.  Thank you.

As a Volunteer Counsellor

We have volunteer counsellors and trained active listeners who are from all walks of life and many of them have experienced bereavement or loss in their own lives so they will have some understanding of how you may be feeling.  If you are a qualified counsellor, a student counsellor with your Fitness to Practice or someone who would like to train to be a Bereavement Support person/listener then get in touch with us. (see Recruitment and Training and Contact form below.)
