Carers - Bereavement Drop-in Service

Our aim is to provide informal bereavement support that is free and confidential for adults who have cared for a Wakefield Hospice patient.

The Bereavement Support Service is offered in a relaxed and friendly environment that is designed to meet individual needs.

You will have an opportunity to discuss your situation with the Bereavement Support Team and will be informed of the available therapies and support which are appropriate to your needs. Some of these therapies may be by specified appointment and time limited.

The Bereavement Drop-In Service is open on Thursdays 9am - 12noon (drop-in) and 1pm - 4pm (by appointment). You are welcome to 'drop in' on Thuirsday mornings, with the exception of Bank Holiday weeks.
