Resources for the Public

This page is a resource for people who are looking for information about death, loss and grief and support available within Cheshire. This information has been updated in light of the Covid-19 pandemic to include information specific to the current situation.

Planning for the Future

Not everyone wants to talk about death and dying and few people find it easy. It is important to talk to the people who matter to you about what the future may hold. Planning what you want to happen may not be a comfortable process, but the more plans you can put in place, the more certain you can be that your wishes and preferences will be known and acted upon.


Support for you or a loved one

Everyone’s situation is different, but most people will need to access some kind of support following the diagnosis of a terminal illness or condition that cannot be treated. You may be able to get support with practical, emotional or other issues.

Understanding Loss, Bereavement and Grief

Loss and grief are normal, but very individual experiences and can affect the person who is ill as well as their loved ones. Whilst some people are able to cope with the support of those close to them, others may need support from outside their usual networks.
