Bereavement resources for community groups

We have resources you can use when you’re helping people in your community affected by the death of a loved one.

We know community groups play a big role in supporting people affected by bereavement.

Use our resources to promote our services and help people in your community.

By using these eKits, you agree to use our resources in the exact form we provide them. Don’t change the designs in any way.
