GriefChat was created by bereavement experts and by clicking on the GriefChat box, you can chat directly to a specially trained bereavement counsellor. GriefChat counsellors are experienced in supporting bereaved people and will listen to your story, explore how your grief is affecting you and help you to find any additional support you might need. GriefChat is a completely free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm. You can email or message the Farleigh Hospice Bereavement Team or GriefChat outside of these hours.

GriefChat provides emotional support for bereaved people, access to trained bereavement counsellors and referral on to Farleigh Hospice specialist bereavement services.

Please be aware that GriefChat is a 3rd party service and you will not be speaking to a Farleigh Hospice counsellor, staff member or volunteer.
