About Listing

Cancer Help’s bereavement support service offers a person-centred approach to bereavement following the death of a person through cancer, or pre-bereavement support for those whose loved on has a terminal cancer diagnosis.

Cancer Help’s bereavement support service will take all of these factors into account in supporting a bereaved relative, friend or carer. The aim of the service is to:

  • Help to understand and come to terms with the loss;
  • Help to identify and express personal feelings regarding the loss;
  • Offer support and reassurance of their sanity, and assistance in interpreting ‘normal’ behaviour;
  • Give sufficient time and space for grief, and ultimately to reassess and redirect future life without the deceased;
  • Give the opportunity and encourage the making of personal decisions about the future.

The Bereavement Support Group offers individuals a safe and supportive environment in which to share their experiences of grief and loss associated with cancer.
