Compassionate bereavement support in Scotland

Compassionate grief and bereavement support in Scotland

Everyone experiences bereavement at some stage in their life, whether it's the death of a parent, a loved one, a friend or child.  The experience often means that our lives will never be the same again.  Sometimes the feelings - the despair, loneliness or even guilt - may overwhelm us, so much so that we need help.  In time, and with support, we can work through such feelings and learn to live with our loss.

We could not help the bereaved people of Scotland without them. We treasure each and every one of our volunteers – training, supporting and developing them as they, in turn, care for our clients.
