Liverpool Bereavement Service is a charity providing the only dedicated bereavement service for the people of Liverpool.
Our service started in May 1998 and provides support to those experiencing difficulties coping with loss. We are currently funded by grant providers who support charities like ours. We receive no funding from the National Health Service.
We also seek donations from our clients on an ability to pay basis. No one will be denied our support due to an inability to donate.
Counselling and support services are provided by a core of committed volunteers, made up of skilled, experienced and qualified counsellors, together with trainee counsellors soon to become fully qualified. Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and deliver sensitive, non-judgemental and empathic counselling support specific to the problems people are experiencing. All our volunteers are specially trained in bereavement management and are subjected to a full background check.
We are an inclusive service working with adults of all ages and children and their families from four to eighteen years of age.
A Board of Directors oversee the running of the service supporting the manager, coordinators and volunteers. They are responsible for the on-going development and direction of the organisation.
The service is able to provide external training, tailored to need, to groups, organisations and employees. Please contact us for details.
