Bereavement support – coping with the loss of a loved one

If you are looking for some help, we have listed some ways you can get further support when you need it.

Local Bereavement Groups

A friendly voice or the help and guidance you need, is never far away.  You can seek out help from your local community or consider a person in your area that may be experiencing the same feelings and emotions as you.

There are many places you can look to support in your local area. Try searching your local council to see what services are available to you.

Bereavement support charities

Grief Counselling 

Losing someone can be painful and the grief can be overwhelming at times. Talking about how you feel and how it’s affecting you is essential to your recovery and not something to shy away from. Speaking about your experience to friends and family would be your first thought and may be enough, but sometimes it might be to seek out more professional support or reach out to the community.

You can get help through various types of support, either through speaking to your GP, your work, charities or potentially paying for a private counsellor.
