The Bereavement Care team

Bereavement Care is run by a team of professionals with extensive knowledge and experience in counselling, bereavement and life coaching.

Bereavement support

You will be supported by a qualified Counsellor, trainee Counsellor or a Befriender/Listener in a private and confidential space. They offer face to face, telephone, email and online support free of charge.

Wellbeing groups

Wellbeing groups provide a time and place where you will be able to meet other people experiencing the effects of bereavement. The people you meet will have a shared understanding of how you may be feeling. The groups are either face to face or online.

Friendship groups

The purpose of groups is to provide a time and place where you will be able to meet with other people who are experiencing the effects of bereavement and will understand something of how you are feeling. The groups meet socially once a month in different areas or online.
