Bereavement Support

Hertfordshire County Council

Hertfordshire County Council has invested in some additional bereavement support from Cruse which can be accessed until the end of March. It is designed to be a practical and emotionally reassuring short intervention to support people in the immediate aftermath of a bereavement; it is not counselling but is delivered by counsellors from a range of counselling organisations that the council commissions and quality assures.

The council has also created some short guides which address some of the emotional aspects of bereavement, particularly during the COVID pandemic. There is a version for adults, one for parents / carers, one for young people and easy read versions for adults / young people with additional needs.
