At City Hospice we are here to offer to bereavement support for people experiencing loss and grief
As Cardiff’s local hospice we provide a bereavement service for the people living in our City who are experiencing grief and loss. Bereavement support is available as a free service open to the family members of the patients who were once cared for by the City Hospice team. The City Hospice team will make contact with families following the death of a loved one to talk about what support you may need, however you are also welcome to contact the team directly.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our bereavement services are extended to bereaved people in Cardiff not already known to our service. Please call us on 02920 524158
The bereavement service at City Hospice offers different levels of support depending on the need identified, this includes Face to face counselling with a qualified counsellor and telephone.
If your loved one was not cared for at City Hospice and you would like to talk to us to see if we can help you please do contact us.
In normal times, we also offer an adult bereavement group, as well as a monthly drop in coffee morning – however during the COVID 19 pandemic, these sessions have been paused.
Children’s Bereavement Services
We have counsellors and therapists who offer support to families on how to help prepare children for the death of a loved one and can offer pre-bereavement counselling to the child. We work with children and young people to provide one to one bereavement support and this is available to any child in Cardiff, regardless if the family have been looked after by City Hospice.
In normal times, we also offer children’s bereavement groups, which provide the opportunity for children to talk to other children of their own age, going through the same experience. We believe these groups are invaluable and feedback from the children is usually along the lines of ‘I was relieved when I realised I wasn’t the only one’. Further details will be provided, when these groups are restarted.
If you would like to access our bereavement support you can do this without the need for a GP referral. You can telephone us or complete the enquiry form below.
