New advice published for professionals supporting bereaved parents and families

The Compassionate Friends have just announced the publication of a NEW information and advice leaflet aimed especially at professionals supporting bereaved parents and their families.

Helping Bereaved Parents: Suggestions for professionals and those in support roles is addressed to any professionals who have contact with bereaved parents - including health workers, GPs, nurses and clinicians, ministers of religion and faith leaders, bank staff, benefits and housing officers, social workers, and more.

Written by bereaved parents the suggestions are gleaned from first hand experience. The leaflet provides those with contact or who are working with bereaved parents both insights and new ideas for good practice in supporting the bereaved families either on a one-off or on-going basis.

Thank you warmly to Anne Bray who sponsored this leaflet in loving memory of her daughter, Jessica.
