Support Sudden’s vital work – donate now
Donate today to support Sudden bereavement services, so we can help more people through the darkest times. Half a million people in the UK are expected to experience sudden bereavement this year.
£20 pays for our bereavement handbooks to reach 8 families.
£50 provides caseworker support for a bereaved family for a week, helping with emotional and practical issues.
Sudden is not-for-profit and hosted by the charity Brake, which has a wealth of expertise in supporting people bereaved in shocking and distressing circumstances from day one onwards. Brake’s acclaimed and accredited National Road Victim Service helps thousands of people bereaved and injured by road crashes. It was set up in 1995 by Chief Executive Mary Williams OBE.
The Sudden service was launched in July 2020 after being awarded vital pandemic funding from the Government, the National Lottery Community Fund and Barclays, in recognition of Brake’s expertise in provision of early intervention care for people bereaved in unexpected and horrific circumstances.
