You can now sign up to SAIF Care – a new bereavement counselling service for your clients

“We would highly recommend the services of SAIFCare to all our families following on from several referrals since joining the scheme.  Like every funeral director you want to do the best for your families but you can’t do it all!

We have absolute confidence that SAIFCare provide that seamless extension of our care ensuring our families continue to receive professional care when they need it most. The proof has come from the families themselves saying how wonderful the service has been. Another wonderful benefit of being a member of SAIF”.

Simon Helliar-Moore, Crescent Funeral Services, Taunton

“SAIF Care is a fantastic idea and even in the first few months there was a real benefit to my business. None of the other funeral directors in my local community provide anything similar so it has really helped our firm stand out from the crowd – as well as connect us with other organisations. Families have also commented on how impressed they’ve been with the service and the support offered.”

Matthew Gallagher, P & S Gallagher funeral services
