Bereavement Care - About Us (Lines Bannister)

About us When someone has died there is so much to do: organising the funeral, contacting family and friends, notifying people of the death, dealing with the estate. It is only after the funeral has taken place that many people begin to come to terms with their new situation. Family and friends may offer help and companionship, but they lead their own lives too. Bereavement Care are also here to support at other times of difficult adjustment - whether that’s when grown up children leave home or redundancy looms, we understand the accompanying feelings of loss. Bereavement Care is a free service and is designed to help individuals with emotional, practical and social support.

The team Bereavement Care started in 2000 and has helped and supported thousands of people during that time. We are a small team of qualified/ trainee counsellors and befrienders/listeners, that share a wealth of experience in helping and supporting adults and children with loss and bereavement. Together we can help to support you and the community in which we serve in a variety of different ways free of charge.
