Our Easter Raffle is raising funds to support one of our much-needed services, our Irish Hospice Foundation Bereavement Support Line.
It is a national freephone service 1800 80 70 77 available 10am to 1pm, Monday to Friday.
Over 30,000 people have experienced the death of someone they care about in the year since COVID-19 forced us into lockdown. It may have been a COVID-related death or a death from another cause but the sense of loss and grief is the same. People have also been finding previous bereavements more difficult to deal with over this past year as feelings of isolation and loneliness set in.
Being bereaved can feel like being lost, drifting without mooring, not knowing where to turn to. We want to give solace and support, comfort and care at a time when it’s needed most. To help people feel a little less lost, and a little more seen.
Our Bereavement Support Line provides a confidential space for people to speak about their experience of loss during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since launching last year, we’ve received over 1000 calls from people struggling with grief all over Ireland.
We must continue to provide this vital service for those who need it most at this very painful time.
Thank you for supporting our Irish Hospice Foundation Easter Raffle.
