About

Established in 1996, Leeds Bereavement Forum is a small charity which works to develop and improve bereavement services in the city.

  • We signpost individuals to the most appropriate bereavement service either locally or nationally. You do not need to be referred to us, our service is free and open to all
  • We provide training, information, events and conferences to people who work in the area of bereavement to support their professional development. We work in partnership with organisations across the city to improve the provision of bereavement services
  • We campaign to help people talk more openly about dying, death and bereavement and to make plans for the end of life. We work in partnership with Dying Matters nationally and locally

For more information please contact us or visit our Directory of Services to find out more about bereavement support available. The Forum is funded jointly by the three Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups
