Share your story

Many people are not comfortable talking about or facing death, dying, and bereavement and don’t reach out for support, but your stories can help change that.

Sharing your story of how Mountbatten has helped you or your family raises awareness of how we can help others who need us.

It also encourages people to volunteer and fundraise for us to ensure our services remain free for our community. It currently costs over £11.5 million every year to keep our services running, and we receive only around a third of this from government funding.

Your story helps to:
• Address fears and stigma about end-of-life care
• Encourage people to access our services when they need it
• Demonstrate the positive impact of our free, 24/7 expert care
• Inspire people to volunteer or fundraise for us and shows them the difference they make when they do.

A story can be about any area of our care and any example, big or small, of when Mountbatten has had an impact on you.

Every story is read by our team and added to our files. We may contact you for further information about your story if you give us permission to. Your story may then be used in our marketing, such as on our social media, emails, website, or our bi-annual magazine.

Please fill out the form below to share your story. Alternatively, you can call 02382 548853 to tell us your story over the phone.
