"It’s a complete necessity to have a service like that available because people can’t just be expected to carry on."
Jamie Barrett, mum passed away in May 2022
We will all experience grief and loss in our lives. How this impacts us can be different for everyone.
Each individual experience of grief is unique and can depend on many factors, such as their relationship with the person who has died, family dynamics, work situation or financial considerations, to name just a few. There is no correct way to grieve. Some may be able to find their own way through grief while others may feel the need for some help and support. The Bereavement Service at Beatson Cancer Charity can help, from information and advice to more structured support.
What we offer
Our support starts with a conversation- How are you feeling? What are you finding difficult? What do you feel you need help with? You may not know the answer to any of these questions. That is ok. Our team of professionals are skilled in working with you to identify the support you may require and create a plan which suits your needs and helps you work towards what is important to you.
"It means the world to us that the charity’s services will now allow for caring and compassionate support to be provided to people like us, particularly as they navigate through the darkness of grief in the first few days and months after the loss of a loved one."
Kerry McHugh, sister passed away in 2017
