Our History

The Rowland Brothers Foundation charity was set up in 2015 by Tony Rowland, MBE. at a time when professional bereavement counselling was not yet widely available. Tony had the vision to to provide a free service that offers both practical and emotional support to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one. Serving our clients with professionalism and sensitivity, we are very proud to be giving a much needed and important service to our community.


“Bereavement Aftercare is a sensitive subject and the session was perfectly pitched being informative, compassionate and thoroughly engaging.”

“The session was very insightful into the different stages of grief and how these are very personal to every individual who loses someone. It was also a good reminder for the group to recognise that grief does not only come about after the death of a person.”
“They are so easy to talk to. We don’t just talk about my loss, but also about other aspects of my life. They do fantastic work within the community. I don’t know where I’d be now if I didn’t have this weekly telephone support.”
