Bereavement and Death

Losing someone important to you is one of the hardest things to experience in life. If you're young, bereavement can be even more difficult, but support and advice are available.

Nothing prepares us for the loss of a loved one whether it’s a grandparent, parent, friend or a child regardless of their age, losing a loved one and coping with grief can be difficult. 

Parents and carers can sometimes feel ill-equipped to know how to manage and are sometimes too distressed to face their children’s distress. The family can often feel sadness, guilt, angry, confused and full of fear and anxiety.

Bereavement support agencies can help and offer many different levels and types of support such as:

  • Pre Bereavement Care
  • Family visits 
  • One to one counselling
  • E-counselling 
  • Young Peoples Support App (11 to 25 years) 
  • Support groups for adults, teenagers, and children
