Bereavement Information Hubs are open in Covid secure forms

Bereavement Information Hubs

Bereavement Information Hubs are part of Compton Care’s Compassionate Communities approach – encouraging people to support one another by creating supportive environments which reduce isolation and improve the health and well-being of members of the community. Bereavement Information Hubs are run by trained volunteers and offer the chance for you to express your feelings and share experiences in an informal environment with others who are experiencing loss and grief.  The hubs are also a great space where you can access information about other services that you may find useful.

Bereavement Information Hubs are free to attend but please contact them beforehand. This helps the provider to make their event Covid secure.

Compton Care have produced some guides to help you understand many elements of grief. Click on the relevant links to find out more:
