Honour the memory of your loved one by supporting Caring Together, and help us to ensure that no unpaid carer is in crisis.
We know that losing someone close to you can be incredibly difficult. Maybe even getting to this webpage was hard for you. But you are not alone.
On this page, you’ll find different ways you can honour someone’s memory and support unpaid carers.
Find out more about how we can support you when your caring role has ended.
Create a Tribute Page
When we lose someone close, we cherish the memories we have shared.
We work in partnership MuchLoved, the UK’s leading in-memory platform, to provide a free tribute service where you can remember someone special, and fundraise in their memory.
It is a special online place to remember a loved one and celebrate their life. The page allows friends and family, wherever they are, to share memories and pay tribute to a precious person who has passed away. As well as sharing stories, you can post photos, light virtual candles and make donations in their memory.
Your Memory leaf
Keep memories of your loved one alive forever by creating a virtual memory leaf on Caring Together’s Memorial Tree.
It’s a special place for you to visit time and time again.
Give in their memory
Remember someone special by donating to Caring Together in their name. We’d love to hear their story and what giving for them means to you.
You can also use the online donation form to pay in a funeral collection.
You could choose to give a one-off donation or a regular gift in memory.
These special donations will be used to support unpaid carers of all ages across our region. It is a way of making a positive difference at a time of sadness and grief.
You may like to have a funeral collection for Caring Together, perhaps instead of donations of flowers. We can supply cards and envelopes to make it easier to collect your donations. Or, if you like, you can set up an online funeral collection in memory of your loved one.
We’ll use the donations to make sure no unpaid carer is left in crisis, isolated, or struggling alone.
You can return the envelopes and donations to us or ask your funeral director to do so.
Fundraise for them
Host a music event, sign up for a run, or organise a raffle in memory of your loved one. You could make it as unique as them, by choosing something you used to do together. We’ve got loads of suggestions, and our team will support you every step of the way.
“Giving to the work that you do in supporting carers is a very fitting way of honouring a man who spent a lot of time supporting and caring for the people around him.”
Jo: Made a donation of £100 to Caring Together in memory of her friend Martin.
What is an in-memory donation?+
An in-memory donation is one of the most special that we receive. It is a way to support our vital mission of supporting unpaid carers in the name of someone special, to celebrate the life of someone you loved, and to honour them by making a contribution in their memory.
Is a Tribute Page easy to set up?+
Do I have to pay for a Tribute Page?+
No, it is completely free. We understand how important it is to cherish the memories of those we have lost, and we want every family processing their grief to have this option to share their photos and stories.
How does it help Caring Together?+
All the money raised in your loved one’s name will come to the Caring Together, enabling us to continue to support unpaid carers.
We hope that opening a Tribute Page will provide comfort through difficult times. Thank you for considering this as a way to remember your loved one. We promise to help honour their memory and keep shining a light in their name.
What is the difference between a Tribute Page and a Dedication Page?+
Your Tribute Page can include stories, photos, videos and music that remind you of your loved one all in one place, and is easy to share with friends and family who can also contribute their memories. On special anniversaries you can light a virtual candle, send a virtual gift or leave a thought. Your online Tribute can also be used to donate and fundraise in memory, so you can see a complete picture of what is being raised in their name.
If you do not wish to manage a Tribute Page, then our memory tree Dedication Page is open all year round. You can visit the page on a special anniversary to leave a message and photo of your loved one and make an optional donation in their memory.
