Linda is the Chief Executive and Founder of The Good Grief Trust. Her own experiences of struggling with grief led her to realise that more could be done to unite bereavement services with better support for those in need.

Under Linda’s leadership, The Good Grief Trust has created a National Bereavement Support website, bringing together more than 700 services, including personal stories and professional advice, in one place.

Linda has worked with Carolyn Harris MP to form a new All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Bereavement Support, for which The Good Grief Trust is the Secretariat. This group brings together charities, organisations and individuals with an interest in bereavement support, to work towards a new, improved, uniform standard of UK bereavement care.
