This past August, Bereavement Assistance’s General Manager, Adrian Gillman, had a chance to sit down with SBS Network and discuss our organisation’s purpose and charitable services. This provided another platform for us to share our mission and inform the Australian public of the charitable opportunities and offerings our organisation provides.
The article, featured on SBS Network, mentions the lack of pre-planned funerals and the many homeless Australians who are left without family, friends or funds to organise their own service. As Bereavement Assistance aims to support those without the ability to provide arrangements for themselves or loved ones, Potter’s Field Funerals was launched to further support this objective of our organisation. The article details how Potter’s Field Funerals offers higher end funerals for people who feel more comfortable in arranging those services. Working in conjunction with Bereavement Assistance, Potter’s Field Funerals is Australia’s only funeral company trading as a social enterprise. Potter’s Field Funerals operates on a “choosing is giving” belief; if you choose to use Potter’s Field Funerals for their services, you are giving financially disadvantage individuals’ the ability to celebrate the life of their loved ones.
The teams of both Bereavement Assistance and Potter’s Field Funerals focus on providing the best services no matter the amount of money spent on arrangements. We ensure every life we encounter is shown respect, cared for attentively and buried with dignity.
