BESPOKE SERVICE FOR VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES EXPERIENCING LOSS AND BEREAVEMENT
The Veterans Bereavement Support Centre was created by those who have served in the Armed Forces and Merchant Navy for those who serve and have served and to ensure that they have full access to a specialist bereavement support network at the time of need for their family and friends. Since its inception, the service has grown and through the massive network of professionals we are able to offer a comprehensive range of services that support people not just after they have lost someone special but also before, so that the support is available and that they can plan ahead.
We offer a bespoke service for families needing assistance with bereavement and support including advice on funeral care 365 days a year from our national office in Romsey.
We do not charge for our services and we are all volunteers.
We are a not for profit organisation run by Volunteers in a clear effective way and we are signed members of the Armed Forces Covenant. No one is paid to work for us and we ensure all of the donations that we receive are used for the benefit of veterans.
We are run by an elected management team who come various occupations and have family links with the Armed Forces and we also have tri-service advisers to the team, so that we encompass the military aspects into the running of the organisation. In addition to the management committee there are numerous sub-committees each with own military link person so that every part of our project is managed effectively.
NOTE: Our Chief Officer has stood down from this role and we are grateful for his time in the past 4 years and for the inspiration in founding the organisation and wish him well in his new job.
It is with sadness that we announce that our Founder Paul Burrows-Gibson has left Veterans Bereavement Support Services with immediate effect due to ill health and we are grateful to those who have sent hundreds of letters of support and thanks in recent weeks and we are forever grateful to him for everything that he has done for Veterans across the UK and we wish him well in the future. It is a sad day for veterans and us all
Veterans Bereavement Support is undergoing a period of reorganisation and restructuring at the current time but will continue to supply quality services and support to veterans across the UK as we have done successfully over the past 4 years

Please note that we are an Independent Community Support Organisation and are not connected in anyway with other service organisations and charities, but will work with them throughout the year when they contact us or we refer families to them. We are not anything to do with SSAFA or the Royal British Legion.
