Since the Test, we have been approached by many families with dependent children where a parent has been told they don’t have long to live.
Through our Family Support Service, we are now able to support these families.
“In addition to the incredible funds raised, Red for Ruth is also about raising awareness, breaking taboos. In Ruth’s words, helping families and kids ‘Do death well’. To know as a result of the wonderful support we’ve had, families are not facing grief alone is exactly what Ruth wanted.”
Thank you to everyone who got involved, helped us spread the word and made donations. We are incredibly grateful to each and everyone of you.
”"We are delighted to have celebrated another #RedforRuth day at Lord’s this year. The momentous start to the day saw families, healthcare professionals and volunteers connected to our cause, come together alongside a humbled Team Red. Seeing more and more people sporting red means a lot to myself, and all of us at the Foundation. Knowing we have the support of so many, gives us the strength and determination to continue our mission to make a positive difference to the lives of people facing grief.
With many thanks from myself, my boys and everyone at the Ruth Strauss Foundation for your generosity, empathy and willingness to help – we are grateful to be delivering our mission with your support."Sir Andrew Strauss OBEFounder

Supporting families facing one of life’s toughest tests.
We believe that every family with a child facing the death of a parent is offered the professional emotional support they need to prepare the family for the future.
Help us help families prepare for grief, death & dying.
Could help us provide a family with an RSF resource to enable parents to open up to their children about their terminal diagnosis, grief, death and dying.
Could provide a session with our Family Support Team, where parents are given pre-bereavement support and guidance.
Could help us train a cancer or palliative nurse through our RSF Training Programme.
