Professionals

We provide memory boxes to many settings including hospitals, hospices, community care teams, funeral directors and more. Our memory boxes are designed to help professionals better support children during the bereavement of a parent or similar care giver and/or sibling. They are available in three age ranges.

If you are a professional within an organisation that comes into contact with children during the bereavement process and would like to offer our memory boxes as a resource then please complete the support application. 

A team of trustees will review your application, once a decision is made we will be in touch. 

If your application for support is declined this may be due to two reasons. 

1. Our memory boxes and contents may not be appropriate for your situation, if this is the case we will let you know of other avenues that our trustees are aware of for you to gain support. 

2. Our charitable funds may be limited, if your application was declined due to this then it is only temporary. We will hold your application on file and contact you when our funds allow us to support you.

Due to significant demand and limited funding, regretfully we are now unable to take new applications for support at this time.

We are currently trying to fundraise to purchase our next 500 memory boxes, if your organisation can help with funding in any way please email our treasurer alistair@madeamarkcharity.com

If you are a BRISTOL organisation OR a funeral director needing memory boxes please email madeamarkcharity@yahoo.com

Our application for support form will re-open once our memory boxes are back in stock and existing orders fulfilled.

Thank you for your support, understanding and patience at this time.
