When someone dies, each person’s experience of grief is unique and for many it can seem totally overwhelming and devastating. At such a time having someone there to provide emotional support and to listen can make a big difference as you attempt to adjust and to cope with life without the person who has died. Equally, support with practical matters such as benefits, finances or advice to arrange funerals can be helpful.
Following our consultation with our stakeholders in 2011, who identified support for the bereaved as a gap in the services we currently provide, we will be offering bereavement support from 14th May 2012.Hugh Tibbits, CEO said “We are really pleased to be offering this crucial new support service. Our commitment is to provide quality advice and support services for the community. We have ensured that those offering this service are fully equipped to provide this vital help by purchasing in-depth training from CRUSE, the bereavement charity”
Help is just a phone call away. Please ring us on 0121 604 611 to arrange an appointment. Like all our services the support is free and confidential.
