About Us

GriefChat® - Transforming Access to Bereavement Care

GriefChat was founded in 2017 in response to the long waiting times experienced by many bereaved people who are trying to find support for themselves or for their bereaved family members or friends.

We believe that it is not acceptable to have to wait for weeks or months to talk to a bereavement counsellor, so using the latest technology, GriefChat instantly connects grieving people to professional bereavement counsellors.

We fund our chat service through our partnerships with organisations who want to support bereaved people better, but we need your help to continue to grow and develop our services. While we are not a registered charity, we do invite individuals and organisations to support us by making a donation. Every penny will help us to continue our work in helping bereaved people.
