A Need

Prior to 2004, Founding Trustee Maureen Frayling became aware of the lack of grief services available for those not being directly supported by the Hospice she worked for. In 2008 she organised a feasibility study of 36 diverse organisations and the results showed a gap in loss and grief services and frustration around the lack of places to refer people. 

The Grief Centre then became a registered charity CC38713.

An Evolution

In 2009, Dil's Funeral Services was introduced to the project and with their support, the Grief Centre evolved. Over the years the Grief Centre’s services have continued to grow. We now support over 8,000 children, adults, and families/whanau with counselling, support groups, bereavement support, and community talks, as well as extensive training programs for professionals in New Zealand and Australia. 

An Expansion

Our Bereavement Support Service enables us to partner with funeral homes to provide support for their clients, and at the same time improve their reputation in the community. The Grief Centre supports over 10% of bereaved families in New Zealand, and since 2020 is also partnering with funeral homes across Australia. We’re excited to be helping more people across both countries and expanding our mission of supporting people through all forms of loss and grief.
