The Community Bereavement Service is available to adults and children of all ages in need of support, whilst coming to terms with the death of a relative or friend. All support is person centred and non-directive and can provide an opportunity to talk in confidence about the consequences and impact of the bereavement. Many people find it helps to talk with someone who will be able to listen to your personal experience, who is not part of their family or close circle of friends.
We can also support adults by providing information and resources to help them talk with children and young people about the bereavement. We can work closely with parents and carers to support children and young people, as you may be best placed in helping them through their emotions.
After an initial assessment you may be offered some of the following support. All our services are free of charge.
