Bereavement support

We understand that there is no timescale for grief and that everyone’s experience is different. That’s why we tailor our bereavement support to meet your needs whether they are emotional, physical, financial or social, whether you are young, old, an individual or a family group.

In our communities, we have set up Bereavement Help Points to help support people who are grieving, irrespective of how long ago they were bereaved and the circumstances of the death. We believe that enabling our communities to understand bereavement is essential and we provide training for schools, employers and a wide range of other organisations.

IMPORTANT: Whilst we sadly can’t host our Bereavement Help Points in person due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have adapted our bereavement support services to telephone and virtual support, to ensure that we’re still meeting the needs of our community as the pandemic continues.

If you need support, you can reach the team on 01543 434536, Monday to Friday 9am – 4.30pm.

Outside of these hours, you can call our 24/7 advice and support line on 0300 330 9410. To find out more about the hospice response to COVID-19, please click here.
