How and where to find support to get through the most difficult of times with bereavement and beyond.
Losing someone you love or are close to – no one wants to go through this. Bereavement can shatter your world, and everyone handles it differently.
Everyone has different experiences – you might need to consider practicalities at a time when you are in deep mourning and would prefer not to for example.
If you are recently bereaved and seeking support, your friends and family could be best-placed to bring you through this emotional and potentially stressful time. Sometimes, though, you might feel you need to look elsewhere for help – whether your bereavement is recent or you have been living through it for a while. We hope this guide will give you some ideas of where you can turn to.
