Grief and Loss Support Line
If you or someone you know has a family member or friend who is critically ill, or who has died from any illness, a new support and advice service can help you through grief and loss.
This is open to anyone across the West Yorkshire and Harrogate region, regardless of where your loved one was cared for.
The free service offers practical and emotional support and advice. The service is available 7 days a week, from 8am to 8pm.
The service can help as a first point of contact for anyone suffering any form of grief and loss, or those worried about losing someone, whether this relates to a family member, friend or member of their community. It is also available to those feeling impacted by the deaths of public figures and/or the volume of deaths across the country. A loss may not have been directly caused by the virus, for example, someone may have been unable to visit a loved one during an illness or see them in their final days.
The telephone support line is staffed by trained bereavement workers who are able to:
– Listen when you need someone to talk to
– Provide emotional support and allow you to express your feelings
– Signpost you to other services and resources if necessary
