In October 2020, ABALON Trust secured funding from the M&S charitable foundation to support those who have lost loved ones due to COVID-19 and also have sight loss and illnesses that can lead to problems with sight such as diabetes, as part of the “Behind the Eyes” campaign.

We partnered with the charity Living Loss to deliver a 12-week programme of online group support to 8 people bereaved due to COVID-19.  They were also from Black and Asian Minority Ethic, had Diabetes and other health issues that can affect eye health and as such are communities that are some of the most adversely impacted by COVID-19.
