What is the Leeds Bereavement Forum?
The Leeds Bereavement Forum supports the need in society to express grief and to 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 three hour Basic Bereavement training to a wide range of non-specialist staff including Adult Social care workers, Supported Housing workers and volunteer groups and so on.
Set up in 1996, the Forum is funded under NHS Leeds preventative mental health strategy.
We would welcome any comments you may have regarding the Directory, also if you would like to be included or have any updates please contact the office via email email@example.com

We are looking for people who might be interested in becoming involved in setting up a SOBS (Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide) group in Leeds. SOBS is a volunteer run group offering peer-support to people who have been bereaved by suicide. (See www.uk-sobs.org.uk) If you have suffered a bereavement through suicide in the past (at least two years) and feel you are now able to offer support to someone else then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
