Beth French

Founder and Director

Beth started Let’s Talk About Loss in December 2016, eighteen months after her mum Susan died. Beth was feeling alone and confused, and was determined that no other young person who was grieving should feel the same. Since that first blog post, Let’s Talk About Loss has expanded across the UK and supports hundreds of young people aged 18-35 who are bereaved. Aside from Let’s Talk About Loss, Beth works full time for The Prince’s Trust, is learning to play the drums and loves to explore all of Bristol’s gin bars.

Trustees

We are delighted to have a passionate and ambitious Board of Trustees, supporting the charity to grow. It is their role to keep our vision and purpose – that no young person should feel isolated and lonely in their grief – at the heart of everything we do. They safeguard our assets, uphold our reputation and oversee our finances. You can find out more about our Trustees by clicking here.
