I am affected by grief and bereavement

Losing a loved one is incredibly difficult in any circumstance, but it has been especially tough for those experiencing grief and bereavement this year.

We often rely on those around us for support during difficult times, but with lockdown causing social isolation for many, this has been difficult to do.

It’s important to use one of the many support services available to you.

You may be thinking “nothing can take the pain away, there’s nothing they can do”, but they can provide vital support on how to manage your grief and how to cope with bereavement.
