1-1 Suicide Bereavement Support

This flexible support is delivered through a dedicated worker, either one of our bereavement support workers or community chaplains  who work with people of all faiths and none. This can be delivered remotely or face-to-face if needed. Your worker can have regular contact with you from any time after the death up until the inquest has taken place. The frequency and nature of the support is flexible and catered to your needs.

 

Criteria: We work with people who have lost someone to suicide across the boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark. We are available for people of all ages, including children and young people who live in these boroughs.
