Welcome to our free, online video workshop: Bereavement support through the COVID crisis

This workshop has been developed to teach the knowledge and skills required to provide confident and helpful support to bereaved people impacted by the COVID crisis.

This workshop can serve as a training resource for public, private, and voluntary services that provide support to the bereaved in the course of their work.

Although this workshop was developed in light of the impact of the COVID crisis, it can be used as a general training resource for anyone wishing to support the bereaved.​
