Families and individuals in Shropshire who have lost loved ones are being offered free bereavement counselling.
The reminder comes during National Grief Awareness Week (Wednesday 2 December – Tuesday 8 December 2020), which aims to get people talking about this typically uncomfortable subject.
Run by Shropshire Council with support from Samaritans, Severn Hospice, Cruse Bereavement Care and Crane Quality Counselling, the Bereavement Support Service offers one to one personalised counselling for people across the county.
Free bereavement counselling is available to everyone in Shropshire. People will be able to talk to a trained professional about how they are feeling and to seek advice. Experts from the charities can also suggest helpful ways to remember and pay tribute to loved ones.
You can access the free bereavement service by calling the Shropshire Council COVID-19 Helpline number on 0345 678 9028.
The line is available for anyone with questions or queries or looking for support and guidance. By ringing you can find out about the free and confidential bereavement services available, and you will receive support to arrange an appointment or get in touch directly.
