Bereft Bereavement Support
Bereft Bereavement Support was set up in 1999 to fill the need for specialist bereavement counselling and support for the adult
residents (the over 16s) of the London Borough of Ealing.
• We are a small, local voluntary organisation and a registered charity (no. 1077140)
• We are dependent on donations together with grant support from London Borough of Ealing and the NHS
• We have 3 paid, part-time staff in the office
• We are not affiliated to any religious organisation
All our counsellors are volunteers, and are trained in counselling skills and bereavement issues. They are either qualified or nearing completion of their training (usually Diploma, BA or MA).
They receive ongoing, extensive training to develop their skills and attend regular clinical supervision to ensure that they are working to the highest possible standards, and for support. Often they are registered with a professional organisation and all are working to established codes of practice.
