Paying for and arranging a funeral is something that most of us will have to face at some point in our lives.  Many of us will struggle to find the money to cover the cost, or be unaware of the different options that are available.

UNISON have an information and advice guide on arranging and paying for a meaningful funeral to assist you at an already difficult time.

If you are struggling to pay a funeral bill, UNISON’s own charity There for You might be able to help. Speak to your UNISON branch welfare officer first and if appropriate, they will help you complete an application form for financial assistance.
