St Richard’s also provides Bereavement Support Worcestershire (BSSW).

BSSW offers bereavement support to anyone registered with a South Worcestershire GP.

BSSW offers bereavement counselling to individuals and couples, group work and telephone support to bereaved adults, as well as individual and group support to children, young people and their families.

In addition, it can offer practical advice and signposting.

BSSW offers support for any type of bereavement, but staff very often work with individuals and families who have experienced traumatic and unexpected death such as suicide, road traffic collisions, death from cardiac arrest, accidental death, and multiple deaths.
