Support for Bereaved Carers

We offer one to one bereavement support for unpaid carers, when the death of the cared for has taken place within the last two years.  We can offer up to six sessions and they can be either face to face or on the phone, each session is for one hour.  Our experienced Bereavement Practitioners give you the space and time to tell the story of your bereavement and to focus on the thoughts and feelings following the death of the person you have been caring for.

 We also run a monthly group giving you the opportunity to meet other bereaved carers for support. 

Please contact the Carers Leeds Advice Line 0113 3804300 or who will be happy to give you more information

There will still be a short waiting time for bereavement support to commence.  However, we are hopeful that we will be able to contact a bereaved carer within 5- 8 weeks of receiving the referral and support will start at that time.

Our bereaved carers team recently joined forces with Leeds film making charity Lippy People to make a series of films. The films focus on bereaved carers, and show what it’s like to be a carer and how life changes following the death of the person they cared for.

Here’s the story of one young adult carer showing how she managed following the passing of her mum.
Here’s Vince’s story, My Maureen, My Rock.
And here’s the final film Getting On With Life…Again.
