Bereavement in the Time of COVID-19

This report has been produced by the Campaign to End Loneliness. 

The recent Loneliness in the time of Covid-19 session brought together organisations working to address loneliness and social isolation to discuss how they have been supporting people who have been bereaved and to consider the challenges ahead. Our discussions brought together experts in bereavement and in addressing loneliness and isolation to share what they had learned about supporting people during the Covid-19 pandemic. In this report we set out the principles we explored in our session and the practical hints, tips and techniques that our participants had found useful in this unique context. This has been a period of significant learning and innovation which should inform the work we all do in future.
