    Bereavement

    We understand the impact bereavement has on our personal wellbeing and have designed this section of our website to raise awareness of the support available if you would like to learn more about the grieving process.

    Losing someone close to us could be regarded as one of the most difficult experiences we face. During the COVID-19 pandemic loss is particularly difficult as it may seem more difficult to access support, be with those who would normally support us and we may not be able to hold the funerals we would expect too.

    We’ve collated some of the resources available that you may like to access, when you are ready to. We also have workshops and courses designed to help with the grieving process.

    When someone you know dies – This information has been designed to explain grief and the different approaches you may use if you feel overwhelmed. We talk about the grief process but recognise this is different for everyone.
