    Hi, hoping someone has some advice for me, my mum sadly passed away 14th December 2020 after an almost 3 year battle with bowel cancer, we as a family have no funds neither did my mum therefore her funeral has been arranged by the hospital. However with being a single mum, working part time at minimum wage and having being furloughed since November with no sign of returning to work any time soon and living 150 miles away, my daughter and I need to travel there to her funeral however I can't afford the tickets, are there any places I could apply to for financial assistance towards the cost of tickets to attend my mums funeral? Thanks for reading.

    Hi Rachii88, 


    Welcome to our Online Community. We hope others will see your post and share their experiences with you too. 


    I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your mum and all you have experienced in arranging her funeral. I'm unaware of an organisation that would be able to offer financial assistance towards the cost of tickets to travel to your mum's funeral. You might find that you are able to apply for a grant that may be able to help. You can search for available grants that you may be eligible for here: https://www.turn2us.org.uk/


    I hope this helps. 


    We're here for you if you need us. 


    Take care and stay safe.
