Support & Advice on Grief & Loss

COVID-19 restrictions, including physical distancing and cocooning, mean some of the ways we traditionally mark our grief are no longer possible. For now, we can no longer gather in one location in large groups, including for funerals. We can no longer receive the company of those who wish to offer condolences outside of our household groups.

This is a very uncertain and upsetting time for us all. However, we can support ourselves and each other in managing our grief in new ways during this time.

The following resources offer advice and suggestions:
