Mission Statement

Repatriation Services Trust (REST) aim is to assist with financial help and give support to bereaved families by repatriating their loved one(s) who have died abroad in sudden or tragic circumstances back home to Wales.

Our Objective

On May 5th 2017 our lives were shattered when we received the devastating news that our son Tom had been killed in Dubai. This traumatic situation was exacerbated by the complex and costly process that we had to follow in order to bring our son home.

Our experiences instilled in us a desire to help others who found themselves in similar situations and inspired us to set-up the Repatriation Services Trust.

REST aims to help those who have lost a loved one overseas by providing advice, support and, where appropriate, funding. The fundraising events run by the REST trustees and supporters, and the donations made by businesses and individuals, enable us to cover the costs incurred in offering these services and supporting other families.


  • Aid is only available to cover the costs of repatriation back home to Wales.
  • Financial aid will only be paid directly to your chosen repatriation company.
  • Financial aid will only be paid for repatriation costs.
  • Aid would be granted in good faith.
  • In order for us to help others, we would ask for the recipient to fundraise to return the money back.
  • Financial support is at the discretion of the Trustees.
