Advertising the New Anne Robson Trust Pre-bereavement Helpline

The Anne Robson Trust is a charity that passionately believes that “no one deserves to die alone.” Liz Pryor, our founder, and Chief Executive was awarded the Member of the British Empire Medal (MBE) in the Queens 2022 New Year’s Honour’s list, for services to end-of-life care.

We work alongside NHS hospitals to train volunteers, who sit with patients in the last days and hours of their life to provide company and companionship, so they know they are not alone. The volunteers also help support the patient’s family and friends. During COVID restrictions these volunteers were unable to visit hospitals, so we set up the Anne Robson Trust Helpline, a free national telephone service to offer comfort and support where needed.

As restrictions have lifted the volunteers have returned to hospitals, however we continue to offer the helpline, which has proven to be a invaluable resource for people regardless of where they are.

The helpline is available for anyone who is struggling to cope with facing their own death or the death of someone they care about. Whether they are family members, friends, neighbours, work colleagues, or even a member of the care staff who may just need someone to talk to; we understand the pressures of caring for people who are nearing the end of life.

I have taken the liberty of attaching a short article which I hope you can send to the editor of your local parish newsletter or magazine for inclusion in the next publication. Alternatively, I would be grateful if you could provide the contact details of the editor, so that we can discuss how we may work together to raise the awareness of our charity within your local community. If you have any suggestions about other useful contacts in your area, I would be delighted to hear from you.

I hope that this information about the Anne Robson Trust is of interest to you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,

Suzanne Brown
