Making a difference in your community.

The Loss Project is a new initiative working across the UK and beyond aimed at connecting people in local communities through the experience of loss, death, dying or trauma.

We know that losses can come in various forms; the loss of independence, confidence, sense of self and of course, of loved ones. Our mission is to challenge the stigma and taboo around death, dying and loss, cutting through the barriers of difficult conversations and subjects that can often remain unspoken.

Through community conversations, social action and creative projects The Loss Project will aim to support communities to become more open and connected. 



In 2019, founder Carly Attridge, an entrepreneur in residence at Goldsmith's University London, decided she was ready to bring The Loss Project to life.

A passionate advocate for all things community, and a curiosity about experiences of loss she wanted to set up a social enterprise that combined her knowledge and expertise to start a new project to build confidence, connections and awareness in issues of loss and trauma in local communities. With a wonderful team on board, we're not interested in parachuting in, but building capacity, skills, connections and legacies.

But why The Loss Project?

Finding a name for a new venture is really important. We feel The Loss Project is right for us because loss is a common thread among the issues we want to tackle. We are all familiar with a sense of loss, whether that be loss of self esteem, confidence, independence, your nearest and dearest, your job, friendships and so much more. If we can understand how we interact and experience loss as a common denominator, perhaps some of the other difficult conversations will come to us that bit easier.

We can't wait to go on that journey with you.
