Community support

We at Kings are here to help – and so are many professional and caring organisations like the ones listed here. We encourage you to see what services they have to offer and to call on them for assistance when needed.

“We are here to be part of supporting people through that first stage of loss – to be people who genuinely care about others and to provide support that others can’t.” — Beth King
