What is Leeds Bereavement Forum?

Leeds Bereavement Forum supports the need in society to express grief and come to terms with loss.

The Forum works to develop and improve bereavement services in Leeds by providing access to up-to-date information, training opportunities, events, conferences and Special Interest Groups to bereavement professionals. 

The Forum also acts as a signposting organisation for people looking for support and provides a Directory of Bereavement Services both on the website and as a booklet.

We offer a three hour Basic Bereavement training to a wide range of non-specialist staff including Adult Social Care workers, Supported Housing workers and volunteer groups.

Set up in 1996, the Forum is funded jointly by the three Leeds Clinical Commissioning Groups.

We welcome any comments you have regarding the Directory, if you would like to be included or have any updates please contact the office at info@lbforum.org.uk
