Bereavement support

We have some understanding of just how devastating losing someone to suicide can be and please accept our heartfelt condolences. We recognise that grief is carried with you forever, so no matter where you are in your grief journey, we hope we can offer you some support.

As a Foundation that educates others about suicide, we know that being bereaved by suicide will, by default, create risk for some of those who have been bereaved. Whilst we aren’t bereavement experts, we are comfortable talking about death, grief, and the pain of losing a loved one or someone we know. We create spaces where it’s ok to talk openly about death, such as at our grief cafes and we offer an online memorial page. We also offer a free-to-download resource for educational settings on how to manage and respond to a sudden death.

Uniquely, we also host the work of Jenny Ford and offer bespoke grief workshops for small groups – family, work colleagues, or school students who have lost someone close, regardless of how they died. You can find out more about this below.

If any of this feels useful to you, please feel free to contact us, at contactus@theolliefoundation.org.
