Bereavement Support Centre




For the past 4 years, Butterflies has been providing face to face and telephone support to anyone who has been bereaved either recently or over the years across Hampshire and more recently on the Isle of Wight as well.

It has long been our dream to have a dedicated bereavement support centre that provides an essential base for  this award-winning charity and an increased range of opportunities for the bereaved and lonely across the two counties


The planned centre will have 7 rooms in total plus two toilets and two kitchen areas.


The centre will be used to provide:

  • 3 Counselling rooms

  • A therapy Suite

  • A training room for volunteers

  • A drop in and chat lounge

  • An administration office


The centre will also be home to:

  • A helpline

  • A bereavement crisis points

  • Suicide prevention counselling service

  • Bereavement Counselling

  • Living Bereavement Support

  • Live links for support during lockdowns

  • A resource point to signpost to other groups and organisations


To make this centre work effectively we need to raise funds to cover the cost of the building for 3 years, equipping it with desks, comfy chairs for our counselling rooms and some office equipment


Initially we need to raise £15,000 through donations, community fundraising and legacies which in turn will help us to secure grants to secure the long-term future.   We have secured £5000 from a donation and need help now to raise the other £10k as soon as possible


We welcome

  • Donations of any amount from individuals

  • Corporate donations

  • Donations of equipment for the centre


This new centre will the most effective volunteer led resource for bereavement support across the County and is much needed.
