About us

We can help you find support available when you're bereaved or affected by a death.

Greater Manchester Bereavement Service is here for anyone who has been bereaved or affected by a death, no matter the cause of death or how long it’s been. If you’re grieving and need support, please give us a call or email. Our friendly bereavement practitioners are here to listen and help find the right support for you.

The service also has dedicated suicide bereavement practitioners to ensure that those bereaved or affected by suicide can speak to someone who will have a greater understanding of what they may be going through and help them access appropriate support.

You can find information about local bereavement services on the Find local support page.

The service also provides support for professionals or those seeking advice for others.
