This week is national grief awareness week (2 – 8 December) and we know that this can be a really relevant subject to many carers.
Grief comes after the loss of someone close, but there can also be grief in the anticipation of losing a loved one, including someone they have cared for for a very long time.
The aim of the awareness week organised by the Good Grief Trust is to raise awareness of the impact of grief and how when we lose someone close to us, we all grieve in different ways. Grief and mourning are a normal part of bereavement and there are a range of support services that can help you cope.
Our helpline advisors, who have recently completed Cruse bereavement support training, are on hand to offer you advice and information on organisations that can support you with your grief.
They can help you know how you can benefit from the support of organisations such as:
- Cruse bereavement support
- Mind, the mental health charity
- Good Grief Trust
- Sue Ryder bereavement support
- Widowed and Young
- Hope Again – young people living after loss
- Marie Curie
