Thank you for visiting our website.
It costs us £18 to make a basic children’s bereavement pack and up to £45 to pay for one session of therapy. We provide these services for free to bereaved people. We can only do this with continued support from fundraisers. So far we have raised around £70,000 for Elsie Ever After.
It sounds an awful lot of money and it is, but we have spent almost all this money already on providing over 3,000 bereavement packs and by supporting families with counselling and creative therapies. To keep up with demand, we need to continue raising money to ensure we can continue providing support to bereaved families when they need it most. Therefore, if you would be prepared to help us raise some more funds by taking part in one of these ways, we’d be extremely grateful:

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly on a tax free basis to charities including Elsie Ever After. Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p if you are a basic rate taxpayer and if you’re a higher rate tax payer, it will only cost you 60p.
