National Grief Awareness Week 2nd – 8th December 2019

Most people experience grief when they lose something or someone important to them.
Therefore, National Grief Awareness Week is used as a tool for raising awareness of all aspects of grief and loss on a national scale. Campaigns such as this have been created in the hope of offering access to a choice of tailored bereavement support to all those grieving in the UK and to those working with the bereaved; as well as to ensure immediate access to support for all types of bereavement in local communities across the country.
For more information surrounding grief, please visit The Good Grief Trust and NHS Choices websites:
