The Guernsey Bereavement Service is a unique charity within the island and its mission statement has been, and always will be, to provide support to those within the Bailiwick who have suffered a significant loss irrespective of race, religion, ethnic background, cause of death or financial standing. We have trained volunteers from a range of backgrounds, all of whom have experience and give their time freely to help those in need of emotional support at this difficult time.

We are able to:

Offer help and emotional support to those who have lost a relative or friend.
Enable people to face their feelings and work through their grief.
Provide emotional support rather than practical help to the bereaved.
Meet the needs of bereaved persons regardless of age, sex, religion, ethnic background or cause of death.
Promote increased awareness of the needs of the bereaved and the nature of the grieving process within the community at large.

If you, or someone you know, needs support following a significant loss or bereavement please get in touch with us on 257778 or email manager@gbs.org.gg

**Note** during the lock down we are providing support via telephone and video (Zoom) counselling sessions. Please get in touch as above if you require support.
