Guardian Angel was started so that no one would ever have to go through the bereavement process alone ever again.
In late 2016, the founding team of Guardian Angel experienced a tragedy when Sam’s Mum (and Roger’s wife) was killed in a car accident. The support from family and friends that followed was amazing. Managing that support together with a funeral and wake, proved difficult. Our family searched for a web app to help, but could not find anything – so we built one!
Death is a taboo, and for this reason discussion on the topic is limited. This lack of discussion means that in that in times of grief people tend to withdraw, and struggle to cope with what they are experiencing. Guardian Angel is passionate about its social purpose: Breaking down the taboo attached to death, and encouraging the engagement between friends and family during this time.
