Our friends at Marie Curie Newcastle have a Bereavement Support Service designed to meet the needs of bereaved people in the community who have lost someone due to COVID, or whose grief process has been impacted by COVID. Their aim is to offer emotional support and counselling via 1:1 telephone and 1:1 virtual appointments via Microsoft Teams.
Let us know if you would like help with being referred to the service. Or you can contact Louise Bowen, COVID Bereavement Co-ordinator directly here for self-referral:
For those struggling with their bereavement, getting in touch with the
service to request support can be as easy as leaving a message on the above
Alternatively, people can access the service via submitting a self-referral
form available on the Newcastle Hospice website,
