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 705 people in 2017-18 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 4,300 people since Down to Earth started in 2010.
Down to Earth in 2018/19
In 2018-19 we reached even more people across the country:
- Our Raising money toward funeral costs tool was accessed 1,364 times, a step-by-step straightforward guide for people to reduce funeral debt after a funeral.
- We provided training using Down to Earth’s expertise to provide support to their own bereaved clients in managing funeral costs.
- We reached even more people through our other online resources including simple and practical guides on how to plan and arrange a funeral.
