Covid-19 Bereavement Information and Support for Families

The outbreak of Covid-19 means that many aspects of children’s ‘normal’ routines have been abruptly and significantly changed. Many children are now spending all their time at home with their immediate family, and children are not able to have direct contact with their friends and wider family.


Our lives are currently dominated by discussion about the impact the virus is having.


This will be an anxious time for many of our children – they may have worries and questions about how the virus might affect them and those close to them, especially older members of their family and those already in poor health.


Child Bereavement UK has made a short film about supporting bereaved children during the outbreak


Winston’s Wish has produced guidance on


Cruse Bereavement Care has produced some tips about talking to children among their wider resources about grief and coronavirus.
