No one deserves to die alone

As a result of the pandemic, more people are dying, both from COVID and other illnesses. Losing someone close can affect us in many different ways, but many of the physical and emotional impacts often come before the loss of life itself. It can be so hard to talk about all of the emotions we may experience during the time it takes for a loved one to die.

That’s why the Anne Robson Trust has launched a telephone helpline service to provide support to anyone who is struggling. They are offering someone to talk to when dealing with the imminent death of someone you care about. People facing the end of life, whether their own or a loved one’s, need support.

Caring for a loved one at the end of their life can often feel lonely and isolating. The Anne Robson Trust’s national helpline will give people that compassionate ear and support that can make a real difference at this difficult time in their life.”

You can call the helpline on 0808 801 0688 – calls are completely free from all UK landlines and mobiles.

Lines are open Monday to Friday, 12noon to 6pm.
