Your stories
Who we've supported


Anna, daughter of care home nurse Elsie

Anna’s mother Elsie, a care home nurse, contracted COVID-19 in April 2020 while working on the frontline, passing away tragically shortly afterwards. Since her passing, the HWF has supported her bereaved husband Ken and their two children, Anna and Andrew. Anna has been taking tutoring lessons provided by the HWF as part of our bereaved family support.

“The tutoring courses really helped boost my confidence whilst studying in the lead up to my exams this summer. I’ve found it very useful. Knowing that the charity is also available to support during the final stages of my educational journey is a huge relief. The support the charity provides is invaluable and I’m glad other students across the UK who have had a similar experience to me will also benefit from this Fund into higher education and beyond.”
