Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

Bereavement support

Facing the loss of a loved one can at times feel confusing and overwhelming and The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice knows that for some people it is important to be able to speak with someone about their worries and concerns.

We have a team of highly experienced counsellors and volunteers who offer one-to-one support and counselling either at the hospice or in your own home, providing a safe and confidential space for you to explore your feelings and thoughts.

Our bereavement drop-in on the last Thursday of every month from 6pm to 8pm offers a place to meet with others who have been bereaved, as well as giving family members the opportunity to access complementary therapies, attend relaxation sessions, and provide space to explore different aspects of loss and grief.

Our bereavement groups normally run twice a year and provide a place for peer support with others who have been bereaved.

These groups are supported by our family support services staff team.

Our bereavement visitor service has trained bereavement volunteers to offer weekly support in your home.

Remembrance services take place throughout the year and offer an opportunity to spend time with your family and friends to remember the person who has died, and give thanks for their life.

Children and young people are welcome to attend as it's important that they also feel included in a special time of remembrance.

After the service there is time for tea and coffee and an opportunity to talk with The Prince & Princess of Wales chaplain, hospice staff and volunteers.

Our remembrance book sits within the sanctuary room and should you wish the life of your loved one to be recorded, speak with a member of the family support team.
