What we do

At the Anne Robson Trust, we believe that ‘no one deserves to die alone’.

Everyone should have the comfort and companionship of another human being as they die, and the support to prepare for the end of life.

We work to support people facing the end of life, whether their own or that of someone dear.


Our work includes

  • Supporting hospitals to set up and run teams of ‘End of Life’ volunteers to provide bedside companionship to patients on the ward in their final days and hours, and emotional support to their family and friends.
  • Running the Anne Robson Trust Helpline, working ing by specially trained volunteers, to provide listening and compassion to people facing the loss of someone they love and the feelings of isolation that can bring.
  • Enabling honest and open conversations about the end of life and the ways in which families can prepare for it, through our Time to Talk podcast series and workshops.
