Community Support

Supporting local charities and initiatives within the communities in which we serve is something we are passionate about at CPJ Field. As a 10th generation family-run funeral directors supporting bereaved families, we witness first-hand the impact loneliness and social isolation can have on individuals.

As well as the emptiness someone can feel when a person they love dies, the act of grieving can be isolating as others can feel uncomfortable, not knowing what to say and even avoiding a bereaved person when they most need support.

There is a danger of loneliness becoming one of the longer-lasting effects of bereavement, with all the health risks and loss of quality of life this involves, so action is needed.

Through our established, arms-length, campaign Never Alone™, we are committed to combating loneliness and social isolation.

Never Alone

First established in June 2018 and coordinated locally via our Community Champions, Never Alone™ is a free, monthly group that provides an opportunity for members of the local community to meet like-minded individuals over a cup of tea or coffee. Each local group meets in a public location, whether that be in a local cafe, church hall or community centre.

To date, we have established Never Alone™ groups running in the following locations*.

  • Amersham

  • Aylesbury

  • Bournemouth

  • Brighton

  • Buckingham

  • Bletchley

  • East Grinstead

  • Eastbourne

  • Heathfield

  • Horley

  • Hove

  • Lewes

  • Uckfield

  • Wendover

*Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions in place, many of these groups are taking place virtually. For more information on how to participate please contact your local funeral director.

We do more than just funerals…

CPJ Field is both privileged and proud to play an active role in the communities in which we serve, both through charitable donations and offering direct support.

Last year, we donated funds to the tune of £19,000 to worthwhile causes in the community through fundraising initiatives and appeals; from bra collections in aid of cancer research, to blankets for rescue dogs…
