This November, the month traditionally associated with remembering those we have loved and lost, we are a nation united in grief more than ever before.
IHF CEO, Sharon Foley commented:
“This has been a very difficult time for families and friends of people who have died. They may have been COVID-19 related deaths or deaths from other causes. We also know many are finding a previous loss more difficult right now.”
“We want to pause and remember those who have died and also show our support for those grieving. Grief is difficult all year round but this Christmas it will be particularly hard. Through Never Forgotten we want to open up a space to remember while at the same time giving people an opportunity to make a real difference to those facing the end of their lives and the many people all over Ireland preparing for the festive season without that special person.”
