A national helpline for people struggling with rising funeral costs.
Reaching people in the far corners of the UK.
When we tell people that Down to Earth supported 636 people in 2019-20 they picture a bustling office filled with staff. Yet all this support was offered by four members of staff who respond to daily enquiries and requests for help.
Our reach goes far beyond our base in London, extending out to the whole of the UK, helping over 5,000 people since Down to Earth started in 2010.
Down to Earth in 2019-20
In 2019-20 we reached even more people across the country:
- Our online funeral guidance pages were accessed by 6,062 people
- We provided training for 84 professionals from 35 other orgnanisations, enabling them to use Down to Earth’s expertise to provide support to their own bereaved clients in managing funeral costs.
