Bereavement Support

We’re here for you from the moment someone close to you is referred to St Catherine’s Hospice until their last days of life and beyond.

Emotional Support

Our expert team of counsellors and support visitors can support you in the days, months or even years after your bereavement. We can offer you support in two ways. One is over the telephone and the other is via an NHS secure system, using a mobile smart phone, which allows you to see each other face to face.

Families and Children

It can be hard to know what to say to children and how to help them cope with the death of someone close to them. Our counselling team and hospice social worker are here to help families and children at the hospice, at home or in school. We can also talk through with you how you might talk to your children about terminal illness and death. You might also like to look at our Talking to children leaflet. We can offer advice and support to schools or other organisations looking after children.

Further reading

Other excellent resources are available, such as West Sussex County Council’s bereavement support webpage which lists practical advice, national and local support services, and recommended books, podcasts and videos to support you.
