BSN – Bereavement Support Now

Wednesday 20th May 2015

GreenAcres – Rainford are part of the Merseyside Bereavement Advisory Group, a partnership of statutory and voluntary agencies brought together through Child Bereavement UK’s regional development project.

On the 18th of May a seminar was held by the Advisory Group at GreenAcres – Rainford, the premise of this was to highlight the advantages of bereavement education and support in the public and private sectors through collaborative working.

Delegates across a wide range of professions had the opportunity to find out more about services available in their area and heard from Andre Rebello – Lead Coroner for Liverpool and Wirral, about his role and hope for the future of bereavement care in the UK.

A marquee was kindly supplied by sponsor A-Z Marquee Hire in Rainford in aid of ‘Dying Matters’ week which housed a number of organisations and charities from within the bereavement sector.

Exhibitors included;

  • Willowbrook Hospice
  • St Helens CCG
  • Health watch – St Helens
  • Merseyside CDOP – Child Death Overview Panel
  • Crossroads – St Helens
  • Child Death Helpline
  • St Helens Co-op Funeral Care
  • Child Bereavement
  • Winston’s Wish
  • SOBS – Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide

A very special thank you to the sixty plus delegates who attended the event and our sponsor Scoff Catering who provided delicious lunch on the day.
