Griefchat is here to help 9am - 9pm Monday - Friday 

We know that no-one can understand exactly what your loss feels like to you. But we do understand that it’s sometimes easier to talk to someone outside of your friends and family about grief and the impact of bereavement on your life and this is why we offer the GriefChat service.

GriefChat was created by bereavement experts and by clicking on the GriefChat box below right, you can chat live to a specially trained bereavement counsellor. GriefChat is a completely free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm.

CONNECT TO GRIEFCHAT BY CLICKING THE GRIEFCHAT LINK AT THE RIGHT HAND CORNER OF YOUR SCREEN.
