Bereavement Help Points
Assisting people in our communities seeking support following bereavement
As we deal with the coronavirus pandemic our top priority is your safety. Because of this we have postponed meetings of our Bereavement Help Points. We are looking forward to starting these again as soon as it is safe to do so. We want to encourage the communities of people that have grown out of the Bereavement Help Points to keep in touch with each other by phone or online while we are following government guidance.
Please see below a list of numbers you may find useful in order to access bereavement advice and support. If you are in crisis please phone the Samaritans on the number below, contact your local GP or go to A&E.
