Support

Support in the UK

Visit the UK Map of Support to see the support groups available throughout the UK.  Support groups are provided by a number of organisations, including Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS), Cruse Bereavement Care and Samaritans, in addition to independent local groups. Please note that many support groups and services are currently (July 2020)  suspended or operating online, due to the COVID-19 restrictions.

Counselling

Many people find that counselling or therapy can help with their journey through grief, enabling them to acknowledge and come to terms with their loss. While we are not in a position to recommend particular counsellors, Counselling Directory is a good place to start if you are searching for local counselling support. The site provides an easy to use postcode search, and all counsellors listed have been verified as being a registered member of a relevant professional body. They also provide a web page on bereavement.
