Adrian’s goal is to continue to grow the organisation, both internally and externally, to fulfil the company’s vision:

Adrian is passionate about working at Bereavement Assistance because of the strong not-for-profit service ethos that the company practises.
He is proud that the company provides families and individuals with dignified, quality low-cost or means-tested charitable funeral services for their loved ones – to the Victorian community, without prejudice.
Adrian says, “Every week families come to us who are crippled financially and are struggling just to live, let alone find funds to pay for a funeral.
They are under emotional stress with the death of their loved ones, as well as financial strain as they worry about going further into debt and poverty.
Bereavement Assistance gives these families a low-cost or means-tested charitable, quality funeral service without having to get into further financial hardship.”
