In the wake of Covid-19 our work is more important than ever.
However, we currently face a serious funding shortfall.
Covid-19 has been especially difficult for those facing death, dying and bereavement:
- People have had to grieve in isolation, without the usual grieving rituals and support networks.
- Many of those experiencing, or caring for someone with, a life-threatening illness had to shield, reducing access to support and compounding anxiety.
- Difficulty accessing GP and hospital appointments means testing and treatment for life-threatening illnesses has been delayed, sometimes fatally.
The impact of these factors on mental health is immense, and the need for our service has never been greater. However, due to unprecedented demand and disruption, sources of funding that would ordinarily support us have become harder to secure. Without immediate support our service is at risk.
Can you help us keep The Harbour afloat?
We are putting robust new measures in place to improve financial stability for the long-term. While these get underway, we urgently need to raise £65,000 to continue delivering grief counselling this quarter.
We have been overwhelmed by the support that we have received so far and have almost raised half of the total amount that we need to secure our future. We are hoping to raise £10k through this crowdfunding campaign to help us to reach our total.
