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.
