During these difficult times, many people are supporting their communities through schemes such as Plaistow and Ifold Parish Council's LCAV Scheme. Sometimes this support includes regular befriending phone calls.

Conversations involving bereavement and loss are difficult. Therefore, the As You Are Centre are running a number of webinars on bereavement and loss awareness which are open to anyone who is engaging with people as a key part of their role, including as a volunteer or in their community.

The sessions are FREE to access, and will help you develop knowledge, skills and understanding around loss and bereavement. When we know someone has been bereaved it can be difficult to know what to say; these online sessions will share theory and understanding around loss and bereavement that can help make difficult conversations a little easier.

The webinars have been funded by West Sussex County Council Public Health, as part of Compassionate Communities West Sussex.

Children and Young People:

St Wilfrid’s Hospice are also running webinars on bereavement, loss and change during Covid-19 specifically for schools, and organisations working with children and young people. For more information, including dates and how to book, please go to their website https://stwh.co.uk/education.
