ACCORD Celebrating 40th Anniversary

ACCORD Celebrating 40th Anniversary

In 1982 a group of passionate, like-minded people came together with an ambition. They wanted to make sure that local people were supported to have as good a death as possible and that their families too would have the support they needed before, during and after loss.
We have come a long way but we couldn’t have done it without support. We have built excellent partnerships with local  statutory services, charities and businesses. We have a community which stands with us through every success and challenge and their one-off and regular donations help us plan our services into the future. They help us improve and adapt current services and explore and create new ways to help our community.
ACCORD was envisaged out of a desire for great care but established through determination, fundraising and campaigning, and continues to thrive thanks to that.



The next 40 years will be built on that same philosophy and will hopefully support us to expand to meet the needs of diversity and an ageing, frail population who all deserve the very best experience of death possible.
