good life, good death, good grief


Small Grants Available

A small grants fund has been set up to support organisations to put on remembrance events as part of this year's To Absent Friends festival (1-7 November 2024.)

Two types of small grants (of up to £300) are available:

The fund aims to support activities that provide opportunities for storytelling and/or remembrance of people who have died.

The range of ways in which organisations can participate is wide and varied.

In previous years, events have included concerts, poetry nights, craft activities, storytelling suppers, exhibitions, gardening activities, movies for children and much more. Some ideas of relevant activities organisations might wish to undertake are available in this Guide to Organising an Event, but we also encourage creative and innovative ideas that feel right to local groups and communities.
