Bereavement and loss

Bereavement is the experience of losing someone important to us. It is characterised by grief, which is the process and the range of emotions we go through as we gradually adjust to the loss.  Bereavement affects everyone in different ways, and it’s possible to experience any range of emotions. There is no right or wrong way to feel.  Below we have made reference to two websites that have been recommended to us by relevant professionals within Lancashire County Council (tap images to view):
