A project initiated by the Beth Johnson Foundation and in partnership with St Giles Hospice in Lichfield, Help Points are community based groups developed on the basis of peer support.  

Online groups run by trained volunteers will provide information on coping with both the practical and emotional aspects of the death of a relative or friend; a chance to chat to trained volunteers and to others in a similar situation.  

Although volunteers are trained in bereavement and loss support, they are not trained counsellors and anyone needing counselling will be signposted to local organisations who can offer qualified support.

The BJF Healthy Generations Project will support anyone wishing to attend the Bereavement Help Point online meetings in how to use technology to enable them join in.
