Support Services

Use the categories below to find appropriate and local support. At the moment, face to face bereavement support is not possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, many bereavement charities are providing online support and helplines. Please visit their websites to check how to access this support.​

If you are looking for a particular organisation you can search by name by scrolling down the list.  It is alphabetical and 'local' organisations are listed first, then UK wide. Our aim is for these organisations to self submit their details to ensure they are accurate and up to date. Where they have done this, the organisation is marked with a tick.     

If you are newly bereaved, feel free to use our GriefChat facility where a bereavement counsellor will (confidentially) talk with you.

Also the "Tell Us Once" government service will allow you to notify more than 20 services and organisations of a death.

Fire & Rain UK Wide

Fire & Rain organises uplifting bereavement breaks - Soul Spas - for widows and widowers. The founder's own healing journey following the sudden death of her fiance at the age of 50 inspired her to set up Fire & Rain to help others by sharing some of the things that have helped her most in feeling more positive again. The Soul Spas are a safe space to just be and relax, in the company of people who really understand. They don't provide therapy but a light touch, optional programme that integrates powerful mindfulness techniques into fun, creative and relaxing activities, thus offering widowed people a more relevant alternative to "normal" holiday offers.
