Support Services

Use the categories below to find appropriate and local 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.
