National Grief Awareness Week is taking place 2nd to 8th December 2021. The event is organised by The Good Grief Trust with support from the Solicitors for the Elderly and aims to raise awareness of all aspects of grief and the type of support that can be offered to those grieving.
The restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic has meant many vulnerable people have felt isolated and alone making it even more difficult for those grieving at home to receive the support that they need to cope with that grief. Bereaved and not being able to reach out to family and friends for a much-needed hug and human connection has been incredibly difficult. The campaign by the Good Grief Trust says – “Distance shouldn’t mean we can’t share our grief”.
No two bereavements are the same and the circumstances in which you have been bereaved can drastically affect what sort of support will feel helpful. The Good Grief Trust has approximately 800 support services and organisations, groups and services offering a variety of support. Visit them here at Home – The Good Grief Trust
