Although grief is a natural process and something we cannot protect our children from altogether, during the Covid - 19 crisis, this is increasingly hard to avoid. Grief can bring all kinds of emotions and you may want to talk to someone about your feelings.

Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice
Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice has launched a new telephone bereavement service this week, to help support grieving adults during the Covid-19 pandemic. The vital service will see experienced volunteers provide one-to-one support to individuals, creating a safe and confidential space where they can talk through their feelings of grief openly and without judgement.
The telephone service is free-of-charge and is open to all adults in the Birmingham area over the age of 18. It can be accessed by anybody who has been bereaved – no matter how the person died, how long ago they died or whether they were supported by the Hospice or not.
The Hospice’s new telephone bereavement service is open Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. To access the service, please call Beth Hopkins, bereavement counsellor, on 07966 165287
