The Hospice’s Family Support and Counselling Manager Chris Jackson said: “We’re making people aware of this new service in the hope to reach out to our community.
“It could help a patient or a family member anticipating death from a progressive illness, a Covid-19 loss or the loss of a loved one through illness during this awful time.”
Referral to the Hospice can be made via the Link Worker at your own GP Practice. A qualified team of therapists at St Luke’s will then provide professional psychological support for people either pre or post bereavement with up to 12 sessions via Zoom or telephone funded by the project.

We will try to find an opportunity for you whatever your background and if we don’t have an opening at the moment, then we’ll keep your interest on file and let you know when we do.

We’re here to challenge ageism and discrimination and tackle the inequalities that exist in older age. We will focus our resources on the critical areas of health and care, loneliness and poverty and concentrate our efforts where we will have the greatest impact and reach.
Whatever happens as we get older, we all want to remain independent and live life on our own terms. That’s why, as well as offering regular friendly contact and a strong campaigning voice, Independent Age can provide you and your family with clear, free and impartial advice on the issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility, bereavement and more….
With older people at the heart of everything we do, we want to share with you, our friends and supporters, our campaign work as we strive to make the United Kingdom a better place in which to grow old.
We are a self-help organisation and we aim to provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other. We also strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.
