Many Londoners have experienced very sudden and traumatic loss during the pandemic. As we begin to work towards London’s recovery from the pandemic, now is the right time to reflect upon the scale of loss and death which is still being felt.
We are supporting Thrive LDN's #LondonRemembers campaign, a citywide campaign, providing an opportunity for us all to raise awareness of all aspects of grief and loss. Read more about the campaign here.
We have a range of self-help resources to support you through this difficult time in our Bereavement Support category.
You have free access to:
- Bereavement support contacts and resources
- Support after sudden bereavement during Covid-19
- Coping with death and grief
- Grief and loss - making a new meaning
- Bereavement top tips for employers and managers
If you are trying to support somebody who is bereaved, you may find it hard to find the right words or, worse, you may worry about saying the wrong thing.
You can talk to us for free, fast and confidentially on our live chat available Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
As a society, we tend to shy away from speaking about death. This can make it harder for bereaved people to understand what they are going through, and to get the help they need, when they need it. And it can be difficult to know how to comfort somebody who is grieving.
Additionally, Thrive LDN’s Support After Sudden Bereavement resource was created with leading charity partners for those grieving the death of someone close or supporting someone going through sudden bereavement, including bereavement by suicide.
