Bereavement Hub

Launch of Virtual Bereavement Hub

We are pleased to inform you that Compton Care have been busy working on adapting their services to support people in the community who have been affected by COVID-19, and that the Compassionate Communities approach is now available for people to access virtually.

Bereavement Information Hubs will now be accessible via a Zoom group chat and will be held every Tuesday and Thursday. Download Virtual Bereavement Information Hubs (PDF, 529Kb) for more information.

Also new to Compton Care is their Telephone Befriending Service, this service has been developed to support people who are affected by isolation and loneliness who are living with or caring for someone with a life limiting or incurable condition.
