What is the bereavement service?
Our bereavement service aims to offer free practical advice and emotional support to those who have lost a loved one. The service can help people navigate the paperwork, cope with their grief and live independently. We will be able to give advice on funeral grants and benefits, make referrals to bereavement counselling and signpost on to additional services to help people remain connected during a difficult time.
We can help with
✅ Registering the death
✅ Funeral plans and benefits
✅ Benefits, taxes and money information and advice
✅ Grief Counselling
✅ Will Wishes
✅ How to be an Executor
✅ Getting you re-engaged with the community and socially connected to others
✅ Getting you independent (supporting you to get on top of your finances, getting online, shopping, cooking etc)
How does it work?
Our Bereavement Navigators will support people aged 50+, living in Brighton and Hove who are experiencing loss, by providing practical advice as well as emotional support to help through this difficult time. The service is for anyone who needs it, regardless of time passed since their bereavement.
Due to limited funding - this service is currently being developed across West Sussex. Get in touch to discuss whether we can help you further.
