Bereavement

FORCE is here to offer free help and support when someone close to you dies from cancer.

Our specialist team offers advice, support and strategies for coping.

For those who have an existing relationship with FORCE during the time of illness, we offer:

  • limited one-to-one sessions to help manage your grief and understand some of the reasons why you may be feeling the way you are.
  • a copy of the FORCE Understanding and Managing Grief  booklet. It helps you to understand some of the things you might be going through on the death of someone close to you.
  • guidance on dealing with bereavement through a series of specially produced videos.
  • information on other organisations and websites that may be able to help.
  • support groups for bereaved partners where you can talk to others going through a similar experience, providing the opportunity to share your experiences, discuss bereavement issues, stress, anxiety management and any other areas you want to address. These groups run dependant on demand.
