Grief Encounter is proud to announce their third year in partnership with ITV Good Morning Britain’s 1 Million Minutes campaign, working to end loneliness and isolation in the UK through the power of volunteering.
This year’s campaign is Missed Moments, focussing on how 2020 and the pandemic has isolated the nation through grief, and the moments that have been missed with friends, family and loved ones.
You can get involved by visiting the GMB website and pledging your time this festive season, to help us end loneliness and isolation for bereaved families.
