We provide quality, dignified funeral services at low-cost to Victorian families struggling financially.

As a not-for-profit registered charity, we are dedicated to helping you through this traumatic time, and leave you free to grieve without the added financial stress of a commercial funeral service. At Bereavement Assistance you have the choice of several types of funeral services… cremation or burial; chapel or church service; unattended or private.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure.

    An incredibly professional, caring, sensitive and dedicated organisation who go above and beyond their calling. No question was too silly, no request too much trouble.

    They were incredibly caring, and no one could have done a better job. Even after the funeral they gave me assistance. I have recommended them to all my friends.

    Absolutely fantastic support provided by Bereavement Assistance. Thank you, Bereavement Assistance, - and while I hope to not have to use your services anytime soon, I know who we will turn to in the future for support.

    The staff at Bereavement Assistance were so wonderful. From the first call I made to them. Thank you so much for your care and respect that you offered my family at such a terrible time. I have already recommended the service to other people.

We understand the confusion, stress and sense of loss at the time of arranging a funeral for your loved one.

That’s why our staff take time to explain the service options available, guide you through the process and find ways to help you and your family… whether that is financial assistance by providing dignified, quality, low-cost funerals or suggesting alternatives to traditional commercial funerals.

Our mission is to relieve poverty, financial and emotional distress by providing practical assistance with our funeral services, so you can give your loved ones a dignified farewell and feel free to grieve.

We believe everyone, no matter what their financial, social or family circumstances are, has the right to a quality, dignified funeral service – rather than putting their family into financial hardship or having a pauper funeral. We never turn anyone away.
