Bereavement Care Service Standards
The Bereavement Care Service Standards set out what services for bereaved people need to do to be both safe and effective
The Bereavement Care Service Standards were launched in 2013. The standards set out what organisations need to do to be safe and effective when offering services to bereaved people . They provide a vital tool for anyone who wants to help bereaved people across all sectors.
They are also an essential tool for commissioning high quality bereavement services.
The standards were developed as part of the Gold Standard project of the Bereavement Services Association (BSA) and Cruse Bereavement Care. The project was funded by the Department of Health.
