Covid-19 Announcement 

Following the Government announcement on 23 March 2020, the Liverpool Bereavement Service will be suspending its face to face client appointments. This applies to both our adult and Oakleaf children services. We’ve been in touch with our existing clients who can contact us if they need telephone support while the office remains closed. We also remain available by phone and e-mail for anyone who feels they will benefit from bereavement counselling when we do resume normal services.

While we are closed, we will no longer be receiving client donations. This means that one valuable source of our funding is no longer available. Yet we will still have costs to cover while the service is closed. Now more than ever we welcome donations. We remain committed to providing professional, affordable and free counselling services for those struggling with grief. We thank all of our dedicated counsellors who are continuing to support clients during this difficult time and all our counsellors who will be ready to offer quality counselling service when we re-open. 

Stay safe.
