Carers Leeds offers support on a one-to-one and group basis for carers who have been bereaved.
Carers Leeds is the organisation that supports unpaid carers in Leeds. If you were looking after or caring for the person who died you can ask for help from Carers Leeds. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t think of yourself as a carer before the person died.
Losing the person you were caring for can be devastating. As well as experiencing feelings of loss and grief, you may be feeling a bit lost now that you are no longer caring for your loved one. You may also be dealing with other more practical issues such as changes to your benefits, money and housing worries and having to look for work, for example.
Find out about support for bereaved carers, including the Support After Loss group and other support groups on the Carers Leeds website or call the Carers Advice Line.
There’s more information about experiencing bereavement as a carer on the Carers Trust website.
