Hope Bereavement Care (Hope) is a not for profit organisation, based in Geelong, offering free support services, when grieving the death of child, the sudden and unexpected death of an adult and those experiencing grief after a suicide death.

Hope works to ensure that 'no one is alone in grief', by providing specialised counselling, groups, information and support for those grieving, as well as those in the community who are caring for them.  With time, support and guidance, people begin to live their lives again.  They return to work, begin caring for their families again and enjoy the company of friends once more.

Since Hope began over 38 years ago, the number of families we help each year, has grown substantially and we are now experiencing unprecedented demand for our services. 

We receive no direct government funding and rely on the support of the Geelong community.

It now costs approximately $500,000 annually to deliver our current services.  We have secured over $250,000 in funding for 2023, but still need to secure additional funds of $220,000 to continue to deliver our services at this level.

Please help us, so we can continue to support those in our community, who are grieving after unimaginable loss.
