Diagnosis & Bereavement Support

Diagnosis & Bereavement Support

It can be overwhelming when you or a loved one is diagnosed with a life-limiting condition or are experiencing a bereavement.  Talking to someone can help.

The Bereavement Listening service consists of a trained counsellor and specially trained volunteers who will allow you to say what you need in confidence and without judgement. Our specially trained Bereavement Listeners are here for you until you no longer feel the need to attend your sessions – for however long that needs to be.

The sessions are usually an hour long and can be in person or on the telephone.

Everyone’s needs are different and support will be given until you no longer feel the need to attend your sessions – for however long that needs to be.
