Winchester Bereavement Support is a voluntary organisation offering support to bereaved people in Winchester and the surrounding area. Support is given either through home visits or by telephone by carefully selected and trained volunteers. These volunteers are called Bereavement Visitors.
Bereavement is a very personal experience and we react to it in many different ways.
You may feel shocked, frightened, helpless, guilty, angry, depressed, lonely, lacking in confidence. You may also feel tired, nauseous, restless, and have difficulty sleeping.
Whether your bereavement was recent or long ago, talking to someone who understands may help.
There is no substitute for talking to family and friends, but this is not always possible. If you are finding it hard to cope with your bereavement, consider talking to a Winchester Bereavement Support visitor. WBS visitors are people who are trained to listen. They will visit you in your home, for as few or as many visits as is helpful. Everything you say will be treated in strict confidence.
There is no charge for the service.
