Bereavement (factsheet)

You’re likely to be reading this because someone you know has died. It can be a confusing and difficult time following a death, and difficult to deal with your feelings and to know what you need to do first.

This factsheet will provide you with the support you’re likely to need when someone dies.

It includes information on:

  • counselling and emotional support
  • practical arrangements you must take care of
  • special areas of concern (children, carers, debts).

There are many organisations which offer support.
