We offer confidential emotional support to children, young adults and adults by telephone, email and post.

We also keep details of counsellors, agencies and support groups throughout the UK.
This site is here to support you no matter where in the world you come from.
Bereavement is indeed one of the most painful emotions the human body has to deal with during our lifetime. So this site was created to be a lifeline to help you, especially after the initial support drops off. The phone rings less and less, and people call to see us less frequently. Daily life and living takes over and we now feel totally lost and very alone.
This is where BereavementUK can be of enormous help and support to you. The pain you may be feeling right now can seem almost unbearable at times but will be fully understood and felt by the people of all ages we have in our Group. It offers a listening ear, friendly support and advice with comforting words on those lonely days and nights and will be there for you for as long as you need them.
