Our aim is to provide information and support to those who want to consider how the time immediately after death can encourage well-being. We are especially here to support anyone who instinctively wants to keep the body of their loved one at home (or bring them back home) after their death.
Everyone in Scotland will have access to a local individual or group who can support them to consider their options and/or care for someone at home after they die. Pushing Up the Daisies will be a recognised resource in Scotland for such support and for educating the general public and those whose work influences dying and newly bereaved people.
We work for all bereaved people in Scotland to know their practical options and legal rights immediately after someone dies and to be able to spend plenty of time with them in the place of their choice if that is their wish. We will keep speaking up for the quiet voices – usually women, often carers – who need time for a gentle release from caring.
Pushing Up the Daisies became a charity in August 2016. Our Charitable Objects are the relief of the newly bereaved during the period between a death and a funeral, the advancement of education in the care of bodies at home after death, and the advancement of health related to grief.
The charity’s details can be confirmed by the Scottish Charity Regulator.
