Welcome to NGAW 2021 – Let’s bravely bust the taboo

WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL GRIEF AWARENESS WEEK WEBSITE

JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN – LET’S BRAVELY BUST THE TABOO

We hope to try and normalise grief and get people talking about this typically uncomfortable subject on a national platform.

Our vision is to offer a toolkit of support from DAY ONE for anyone suffering a bereavement, anywhere in the country.

This annual national event is driven by The Good Grief Trust, the UK’s leading umbrella charity, bringing all UK bereavement services, support organisations and helplines together under one central database. Offering early signposting to a choice of support for both the bereaved and those working with them.

Julia Samuel; “it isn’t the circumstances of the death that will predict a positive or negative outcome, it is the support they get at the time and after the death This is the key component to anybody finding a way to rebuild their life.”
