Managing Grief and Trauma during Covid-19

The outbreak of Covid-19 (also known as Coronavirus) has left many of us fearful for the health and wellbeing of our loved ones. 

Those who have been bereaved by Covid-19 will be experiencing the shock of a loved one dying suddenly, often after a very short period of illness. 

It is important in these challenging and difficult times that people bereaved by Covid-19 are cared for and receive support, especially in the first days and weeks following their bereavement.

We understand and recognise that families are trapped in quarantine, unable to touch and comfort each other, living in dread that another family member could fall ill. 

We have put together this guidance, to help you to understand the support that is available to you in this situation.

For general help The Waiting Room Smart Directory (TWR) enables both professionals and the public to find a wide range of support and services. 

This includes Safeguarding concerns and Criminal Justice support to Faith Community Links, education, employment and sexual health services.  In fact, TWR links people with support opportunities across the life course in all aspects of life.
