Bereavement support during COVID-19

We are here to help you throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

We understand that this will be a very difficult time for you.  When someone dies, there are a number of decisions and plans that need to be made, which can be difficult when you have lost someone.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our processes and methods of support have changed, and we want to make sure you have access to the information and support you need.

The Sussex Bereavement Helpline has been set up to provide you with information and guidance, and is run by a team of experienced support workers, who can talk to you about the tasks that need to be completed after a death – such as registration of the death, arranging a funeral or informing other people and organisations. The Helpline can also give you information about sources of help and support for you and your family and friends as you grieve.

The Sussex Bereavement Helpline is available to you Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm.

Please call 0300 111 2141
