Welcome to the Family Bereavement Network in Europe.

The Family Bereavement Network in Europe (FBNE) aims to bring together organisations and people across Europe who work with bereaved people. We want to work to improve support and understanding for those who have been bereaved. We have a vision of a Europe-wide culture of compassion and support. Our ultimate aim is that all bereaved people should have access to high quality support wherever they live.

As a network our primary focus is on making a difference through the gathering, exchange and dissemination of information. The three key areas where this is vital are:

  • research
  • effective practice and intervention, and
  • policy.

By providing multiple forums for networking and collaboration we aim to help alleviate suffering and improve life prospects for a vulnerable and often over-looked group in society.
