New listening service for people who have lost a loved one

This new service has been launched to support people in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw who have lost a loved one during the Coronavirus pandemic 

Health and local authority partners in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw recognised that during the Coronavirus pandemic people are experiencing the death of family and friends in difficult and painful circumstances. It is very likely that due to the restrictions people may not be with their loved ones at the time of their death or they may have witnessed traumatic scenes and it could have happened very quickly. Restrictions also mean that the usual practical and emotional support people can physically get from family and friends following a bereavement may not be there.

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Councils with Rotherham and Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Groups have therefore commissioned ‘Listening Ear South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw’ to support people who have lost loved ones at this time, whether that be by coronavirus or other means.

The service is a free to call number 0800 048 5224 or website: www.listening-ear.co.uk/refer and people who call will be able to talk to a trained therapist who will be able to offer emotional health and wellbeing support and practical support.
