Why do we do what we do? Because we really do care.
Alex and I have been working together for 7 years now, and more specifically for 5 years together on Bereavement UK, ever since I offered to cover for Alex while she was on holiday- little did I know! For 5 years now we have responded together to countless emails from around the world, moderated our old forums at odd hours in the morning, filtered through a trillion spam emails, contemplated cardboard coffins, trained vast varieties ( in every sense) of professionals- and we love what we do more than ever.
I read recently that if you are not passionate about what you do, you should stop doing it. Life is too short. Bereavement will eventually be with us all.
I feel fortunate to have found a friend and colleague in Alex all those years ago- and even when I’m ‘moderating at midnight’, it all feels worthwhile when we hear back that our support, information, site, or training has been useful. We are passionate about providing bereavement support and information, and, yes, we even enjoy it!
I think this comes across in our blogs, articles, videos and training.
Let us know what you think!
