Grief: supporting yourself and others

What is grief

Grief is our own private, inner response to losing something or someone important.

There isn’t a right or wrong way to grieve or a time frame. How you feel and how long grief lasts is different for everyone.

What to say when someone dies

It is normal to be unsure about what to say when someone has been bereaved.

The most important thing is to listen. Be genuine, kind and start with something like, “I’m sorry to hear that your Dad died”.

Where to find extra help

Avoiding socialising and losing interest in what you used to love are some of the signs you might need more support.

Cruse Bereavement Support and Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland are here to help.

I’ve set up a befriending service for isolated and lonely people within the area. Together with help from Malmesbury Town Council and Heals charity of Malmesbury, we have over 100 volunteers and have set up a helpline for people to call if they need someone to talk to.
