Family Bereavement Support

Support to the family can include:

  • individual sessions with children and young people to help them express/explore their grief and any related problems
  • family sessions which often focus on sharing difficult emotions and helping family members communicate with each other
  •  separate support to parents/carers to help them with understanding and responding to their children’s grief


Adult Bereavement Support

How do I access support?

Telephone the Bereavement Support Worker on 0115 949 7354 between 8.30 am and 4.30 pm, Monday to Friday. You will be able to arrange a time when she can visit you at home to talk about what support you may need.

What support is available?

Treetops Hospice offers regular one-to-one support to people over the age of 18 at Polly's Bereavement Centre in Sandiacre. Should you be unable to access Polly's, support can be arranged in your home. There is also the opportunity of joining a monthly support group at the hospice. Occasionally you may be directed to another, more appropriate service.

 The service is managed by the Bereavement Support Worker who is an Accredited Counsellor with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. The support is provided by trained bereavement support volunteers and qualified counsellors.
