National Bereavement Partnership - COVID-19 Hub

The National Bereavement Partnership - COVID-19 Hub is a charitable organisation that has been set up to provide a platform for associated practical advice services, support assistance and where needed.

This counselling includes all those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Support will be offered through the journey and assistance with issues associated with bereavement caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Skilled staff are available to support the following groups:

  • The Bereaved (COVID-19 relatives)
  • The Bereaved (Non COVID-19) – those who are impacted on by not being allowed to visit the sick; be at a loved ones side at the time of death; unable to view a body after death; family members who are not permitted to attend funerals and many other associated issues.
  • Health Professionals - for whom the reality of exponential increases in the numbers of those dying and for whom there is little they can do, is dawning. This is in stark contrast to their daily striving to heal the sick. The extreme toll that this will take cannot be overstated. Experience suggests the impact will be prolific including a fear for themselves, their families and their colleagues
  • Residential care setting, supported living and home care, including the staff
  • Residential educational care settings
  • Community staff
  • Children for whom this is proving to be a bewildering and traumatic time

Helpline Tel No: 0800 448 0800 is manned seven days per week, 7am – 10pm. Alternatively contact can be made by email or visiting the website
