The Irish Hospice Foundation has produced leaflets, videos and audio recordings about bereavement, grief and dealing with loss. These pages also house links to additional bereavement resources and information.
The bereavement pin, designed by Alan Ardiff, symbolises the circle of life and the strengths and resources that we can draw on as we adjust to the loss of someone special.
