Norfolk and Waveney Mind has launched a new service to support people who have lost loved ones during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The service, called Cove, will offer one-to-one and group support led by the charity’s Complex Bereavement team, with evening groups in Norwich starting on 20th October.
Cove offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment for people to speak openly about their feelings and emotions, and an opportunity to meet others who have had similar experiences.
It’s open to anyone over the age of 18 who has been bereaved during the pandemic, whether or not the loss was directly caused by Covid-19. People can contact the charity directly to sign up, or be referred by GPs and other health and social care providers.
Agi Huszcza, Complex Bereavement Service Manager at Norfolk and Waveney Mind said: “Being bereaved is a complex and challenging experience, even more so during the current restrictions on things like family gatherings and funerals.
“We hope that Cove will give people the support they need to grieve in the way that is right for them.”
