The Kindness Project is a confidential support scheme co-ordinated by The Bahu Trust aimed at helping members of the community, regardless of race, faith or background, through the bereavement process.
Our trained volunteers will offer a befriending service that delivers one to one support to adults that are recovering from the trauma and loss of a loved one and live within the Hall Green Constituency.
About the Kindness Project
During the pandemic we have carried out many community consultations and concluded that bereavement is one of the major causes of anxiety and fear in the community, especially from those who have certain rules and regulations in place which govern how they carry out a funeral from a faith perspective.
Who is this for?
If you are over 18, a resident within the Hall Green Constituency and experiencing bereavement, this service can be for you.
How do I get this help?
Go to their Contact page to see how to get in touch. We will respond as quickly as we can and start to connect you to one of our volunteers. We may also advise you on other support resources that might be helpful.
