What we do for you?

Manchester Area Bereavement Forum (MABF) is a bereavement support and training organisation set up by volunteers in 1993 to offer support to people experiencing loss and those caring agencies involved in bereavement work within a variety of professional and non-professional settings.

The Aims Of The Forum Are:
To raise awareness of the needs of bereaved people:

  • To increase co-operation between groups
  • provide bereavement services
  • provide training and education in bereavement support
  • To act as a resource for agencies involved in helping those experiencing loss

Our Increase In Funding Meant That We Could Provide Even More For You

Being based in Manchester means we have a large audience. We wanted to let people know there are organisations local to them that can help them through their difficult times.

As bereavement is a sensitive subject many people don’t seek help and advice, but ibus-supersidef they know our services are there, they will be more likely to.

Our work with Exterion Media and their bus Superside advertising helped people become aware of our organisation, which in turn has resulted in a greater amount of funding which has developed our services much further.

What have changed to help you

Providing effective bereavement support to voluntary and professional groups, we conduct training courses which are run by a professional team led by a training co-ordinator.

We can offer advice and guidance on a wide range of matters from choosing the type of course to setting up your own bereavement support service.

We have a number of professional speakers from a range of backgrounds who are able to come to your organisation and discuss the work of the MABF and bereavement support. Contact us for more details.
