Dying and grief are universal experiences, but too many people face them alone. Sue Ryder seeks to break down the barriers to talking about dying and grief. From providing care and support for someone at the end of their life to helping someone manage their grief, the charity knows there’s no one size fits all when it comes to how we cope and the help we need.
For more than 70 years, Sue Ryder has been a source of strength and support for anyone living with a life-limiting illness or grief. Last yer, the charity cared for more than 8,700 people in hospices and in their homes; its Online Bereavement Counselling Service delivered 4,700 hours of counselling sessions; and 160,000 people used the Online Bereavement Community.
Your donation can make a positive difference for someone during even the darkest of times. Whether in the last months, weeks or days of life, or living with grief, your support could help people live the best life they possibly can.
