Coping at Christmas
Christmas can be a painful time for people who have been bereaved whether it’s your first year without someone, or you were bereaved many years ago. We know that facing Christmas alone, or whilst grieving, can be a daunting prospect. One of the things that can help can be to spend some time trying to work out, well in advance, which arrangements will best suit your needs and the needs of others who share your loss.

Facing the future
Facing the Future has been developed by Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Care to help support people who have been bereaved by suicide. Samaritans branches in Basildon, Coventry, Exeter, Southend and Wakefield will be working with their Cruse area counterparts to offer these groups in 2015. Facing the Future gives you the opportunity to meet others who have lost someone to suicide and share your experiences and feelings. Read more

Bereavement at work
For many employers, it can be difficult to know how to respond when an employee is bereaved, and what can be done to ensure that the impact on both the individual and the organisation is minimised. With one in ten people in the UK likely to be affected by bereavement at any one time, employers can benefit from planning ahead.
