Care after Caring: supporting family carers facing and following bereavement

We are delighted that our work has been showcased in a new report Care After Caring from the National Bereavement Alliance and Hospice UK, commissioned by NHS England’s Commitment to Carers programme.

The report shares good practice and ideas of how to improve support for carers facing bereavement. Some of these are things that can be put in place before the death, to improve outcomes in bereavement. Others are ways of improving support after the death, to make it more sensitive to the lasting impact of caring. Published to coincide with Carers Week 2019, the report draws on research, policy and findings from consultations with former carers and those supporting them, to lay out a series of six aspirations for local areas and services to get the right support in place at the right time. The report includes 12 examples of local good practice in supporting carers facing and following bereavement, one of which is Leeds Bereavement Forum.

Leeds Bereavement Forum Membership Form

Membership of Leeds Bereavement Forum is free and open to both organisations and individuals.

Pathway for children and young people in Leeds who have been bereaved

The pathway is aimed at practitioners within universal settings such as schools, Children’s Centres, voluntary sector agencies or GP practices. The pathway focuses predominantly on supporting children who have lost a key family member or friend, as opposed to focusing on supporting a parent when a child dies.

The Leeds Charter For Bereaved Children

The aim of the bereavement charter is:

- To raise the profile of childhood bereavement in Leeds
- To increase people’s understanding of the needs of children who have been bereaved
- To increase people’s awareness and understanding of the effects bereavement in childhood can have on the future development and achievement of that child into adulthood.
- To work towards improved support for bereaved children in Leeds both through specialist and non-specialist services.
