Bereavement Support

Bereavement and loss affect people differently; there is no right or wrong way to feel. The following services may be able to support you in times of need. We have included services that can support following the loss of a loved one, through suicide as well as other circumstances and services for those grieving the loss of a pet. Please click in the image to be directed to the site.

.Whether a death is expected, for example after a long illness, or sudden and unexpected, the grieving process is deeply personal and there are no rights and wrongs. The main thing is whether you feel you are managing ok or finding things a struggle, particularly as time goes on. If you think you do need more support this website can provide you with information and links to organisations and services for bereaved people (of all ages) in Derby city and Derbyshire.

The Tomorrow Project is a confidential suicide prevention project that has been set up to support individuals and communities to prevent suicide. Suicide is a decision that someone makes to end their life when they feel overwhelmed by their circumstances, when the struggles they face seem too difficult or painful or they have run out of options.

Suicide leaves behind devastation on many levels, with many questions and concerns. Those directly affected are left with bereavement and loss, so it is essential that help is at hand.

We are the only organisation offering peer-to-peer support to all those over the age of 18, impacted by suicide loss in the UK. We help those bereaved by suicide to support each other, at the time of their loss and in the months and years that follow. We are a self-help organisation and we provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other.

CBN mostly supports professionals working with bereaved children and young people, with information updates, key resources and networking opportunities, but there is a page dedicated to supporting parents and carers.
