Grief is a very natural, normal and necessary reaction when someone close to us dies, but that doesn't mean it is any less painful.
Pilgrims can help you to recognise how grief might be affecting you, and to understand that although it can seem overwhelming at times, it is perfectly normal to feel this way when you are adjusting to living with a loss.
For more information about bereavement support available or to access any of our services, please call us on 01233 504 127 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
