Bereavement support

Tell Me About Them

'Thank you for helping with my husband.  I know you only came twice but he really liked you and enjoyed your company.  It was also a comfort for me, when you came to see me after he died.  A great help in that time.   You are a warm and very caring person’ 

Once a loved one has died EPC recognises that  carers can be left in a very lonely space. The world as they knew it has changed and they have to learn what this new world is all about. This is the space our Bereavement Volunteer Companions step in to. They are linked with a carer for up to 6 sessions to  have a coffee and  chat or to teach a new life skill.

Our Bereavement volunteers also support our bereavement groups.

We only accept volunteers into our bereavement support roles once they have been with us for at least one year. We do ask you to let us know if this is an interest of yours.
