Respect are associated with the the Natural Death Centre through the Association of Natural Green Burial.
In the 22 years since the charity was founded in 1991, the Natural Death Centre has sought to inform, empower and inspire the public in all matters relating to death and dying, and in particular to increase awareness of funeral choices outside of the mainstream.
Despite their long running links with environmentally friendly funerals, they are not a green pressure group, but primarily a movement for social change.
They have played a central part in demystifying the traditional funeral, encouraging thousands of families in having the kind of funerals they wanted, and helping create opportunity for new rituals to emerge.
They are, and will continue to be an informed and reflective presence on issues such as dying at home, caring for our dead and changing funeral practices and they actively promote natural burial as an option that should be offered to everyone.
