Milton Keynes Bereavement Service
is a charitable organisation registered with the charities commission and is a member organisation of the City Counselling Centre.
Past - Present - Future
Milton Keynes Bereavement Service has been supporting the local community through bereavement for over 20 years.
The Milton Keynes Bereavement Project began in 1979 with twelve volunteers, trained to support people who had been bereaved.
It has grown, both in reputation and in the range of support offered, to become the MK Bereavement Service.
All our Volunteers take an Initial Bereavement training course and undergo regular on-going training.
Our volunteer counsellors receive out-of-pocket expenses. We have a few hours of paid secretarial support each week.
The Service has to apply annually for grant aid from Milton Keynes Council which generally amounts to approximately 75% of it's funding.
For the balance the service relies upon donations, fees for training and other one-off grants.
Milton Keynes is the fastest growing urban area in the United Kingdom.
The number of clients who seek our help each year continues to rise.
We need your help in order to continue with this very important work.
We are a caring organisation, offering emotional and practical support in a number of ways:
A safe and confidential environment where our clients can share their grief and feelings
24 hour Answer-phone
Telephone Helpline and Drop-In Service
This support is offered as long as the client needs it. For some, one visit is sufficient - others may need regular visits over a longer period of time.
There is no charge for our service, but donations are much appreciated.
