Bereavement charities and organisations
Coping with the loss of a loved one is difficult for anybody, no matter what the situation.
But what's sometimes even more difficult to deal with is the circumstances of the loss.
Often people who've lost somebody under tough circumstances feel they're alone, with nobody to talk to who understands.
However, there are various charities and organisations that support people who are dealing with specific incidents of loss.
The charities and organisations offer advice and information, and many have local groups set up for people to meet others who are going through similar experiences, helping to eliminate feelings of isolation and instead bringing assistance and comfort.
