Shetland Bereavement Support Service

'minding you while you mind them'

* COVID-19 UPDATE *  To ensure the safety of our support workers and clients during the COVID-19 pandemic we are offering telephone and zoom support sessions.  Face to face support is available by appointment only and in line with our risk assessment.   

Shetland Bereavement Support Service works with local and national service providers, funders and with the local community to promote awareness and good practice in bereavement care in Shetland by providing information, training and education. Through our specially trained volunteers we seek to offer accessible and sustainable support to any individual in Shetland who is experiencing a bereavement with the aim that no one in Shetland finds themselves alone and struggling with their grief.

  • Build your resilience as a family to cope better with loss, grief, sadness & loneliness.

  • Suitable for children and teenagers.
