What to say to get your nomination noticed

Suggested text if we cared for someone close to you in a Sue Ryder hospice

Sue Ryder is a charity that cared for my family member/friend, and they are there for people when it matters. One in four families are not able to access the end-of-life care they need but working with Sue Ryder, our company can help to change this.

[Organisation name] will be helping families through the most difficult times of their lives and filling someone's last days with love.

Suggested text if we supported you through a bereavement

Sue Ryder helps hundreds of thousands of people who are grieving through a range of vital services, meaning people can get the right support at the right time. I am passionate about helping them reach more people, and our charity partnership could do just that. Please join me in calling for better grief support for all, and support Sue Ryder.

Explain why is Sue Ryder important to you

Sharing your own personal connection to our care can be really powerful when reaching out to your colleagues. They may have had similar experiences and connect to your story. Even if they haven't, your personal link to the work Sue Ryder does can really help strengthen your nomination.

Explain why Sue Ryder needs your support

Did you know that the government provides only one third of the funding that hospices need and we receive no funding for our bereavement services? Your organisation's partnership could make a real difference to the number of people we are able to support.
