Covid-19 Families Bucks

Thanks to our MK Community Foundation grant, families suffering bereavement in the covid-19 pandemic have been able to remember their loved ones as a community...

Who are Covid-19 Families Buckinghamshire and what do they do?

Covid-19 Families UK is a national network of 40 support groups supporting those who have lost loved ones during the pandemic. Covid-19 Families Buckinghamshire offer emotional and practical support to anyone who has become bereaved in the local area.  

What support did Covid-19 Families Buckinghamshire need?

Financially support was needed to organise and host a lantern parade and service in Buckinghamshire so families could come together and find comfort in the most distressing of times. The charity needed to raise awareness of who they are and the support they can offer to those who need it, particularly the BAME, Faith Groups and LGBTQ Community.

What difference did our MK Community Foundation grant make?

The grant the Covid-19 Families received not only allowed them to host the memorial event in Buckinghamshire, but also raise their profile and build awareness through the local media. The coverage allowed them to engage with more prominent members of the community which attracted even more valuable support for the work they do.

What do real people say?

“Bless you and thank you to all involved for creating an amazing safe space to remember together. Huge hugs to everyone affected.”

“I turned up with my dog and it gave me a place to reflect in silence and remember my dear mum alongside others who know how it feels.”
