Hi Katie This sounds like a really great vision to solve an important problem, so you’re off to a great start! I agree with you that a lot of focus obviously goes to the person within a family with physical or mental illness and this does often mean that other family members or people on the ‘periphery’ don’t get the support they need. A few thoughts which I hope are useful: firstly to establish what is ‘unique’ about your proposed service or what is the gap you are trying to fill? Look at what other services offer and where they overlap, even if they’re not specifically grief or bereavement services (having a chat to the people in charge at your local Headspace service might be useful). I’m not sure if you’re aware of Feel The Magic who seem to be an organisation in the same space and may be a useful resource? Secondly, I would think about which one of your ideas is most central to your vision and start there. You have several good ideas (camps, apps, websites etc) but you are possibly better off starting with just one part and focus on doing that really well. For example, you mentioned having a ‘child/teen/adult friendly’ website but who is the central audience you are trying to reach? Sometimes we can try to reach such a broad cross-section of people that we end up missing everyone. Probably the first step though is finding some like-minded people who can help you. Unless you have a lot of tech knowledge I would think you would definitely need people in this space to assist with the app (which I think is a great idea!) or the website. Assuming you don’t have financial resources at your disposal, I would suggest looking for other young people like yourself, perhaps by finding a ‘social entrepreneurs’ group in your area. Otherwise you might be able to contact universities or training colleges to ask if they have any student groups that do pro-bono work to help with their training (a NFP I do some work for got valuable advice and know-how from one such group). Perhaps you might already have some contacts in your wider circle of family and friends such as accountants/lawyers etc who may help you with some advice about how to set up the organisation. Possibly I would also look for someone with marketing experience who can help you to put together some brochures etc and a presentation that you can take to community groups/service clubs who may be willing to provide some funding or other assistance to you. Growing an NFP in this sort of space requires being relentless about your message to anyone who will listen. Hope that’s helpful and feel free to get in touch with a mentor directly if you need more assistance. I’m sure the journey has been very tough through your mother’s illness and I wish you the best with your venture. Gavin.
