Support for the over 50’s

Welcome to our page for those of you have been through a loss in later life. We hope this page offers you some comfort, information and support.

Please watch our films of others who have also suffered a bereavement and who may be able to give you some advice on what helped them to cope with their grief after they lost someone close. We have some book further down the page, which may be useful, or please visit Our Library for more suggestions.

There are links to other websites who offer befriending services and helplines which you may like to try. Please call Silverline if you just want to chat with a lovely volunteer at any time of day or night. They really are very kind and will hopefully help you to feel less isolated.

You may like to visit our Well Being page for some ideas on what helped others feel better.

If you are newly bereaved, visit these pages for important information which may help now.
