Grief and Bereavement

“Grief is the last act of love we can give to those we loved. Where there is deep grief, there was great love.”- Anonymous

When a cherished member in the community passes away, family, friends, and the wider community will no doubt experience a period of grief. Grief is a fundamental experience of being a human being; however, the universal nature of grief makes it no less easy to bear. If you or someone you love has been affected by grief, we encourage you to reach out, support, and love each other as we move through this difficult time together.

The grieving process is normal, and often those who are bereaved report that they find the greatest comfort in being supported by friends and family members. If you are looking for more information on how to support your loved ones during this time, or if you feel someone you love may need professional support, we hope that the resources and organisations listed on these pages are helpful and useful.
