What is grief?

Grief is something we experience when someone close to us dies. There is no right or ‘normal’ way to feel, as everyone experiences grief differently.  

When you’re grieving, it’s important to not put too much pressure on yourself to feel better.

Where can you go for support?

Grief is a natural response to loss that many people will cope with through support from family and friends. However, if you want to talk to someone else about your grief, there are services, organisations and community groups that can help you.

For more information, and contact details, have a look at the Tameside Council website bereavement page.
