Somerset Bereavement Support service Launched

Home » Latest News » Bereavement Support service

Anyone dealing with a death (for whatever reason) can get free support from the Bereavement Support Service. Call us on 0800 304 7412. There is further information available by clicking on the ICON.

It can be difficult to ask for support. It's an informal service with friendly experienced staff and volunteers. It can be for practical reasons or they just might want to have a chat with someone not personally involved so don't have to worry about burdening them. If the person needs more than that we have set up counselling support as well.

A volunteer can pass on the telephone number or they can offer to give the person's details to the service, and they will ring them back. Just need name and telephone number and of course their permission. No email facility.
