Support Groups & Organisations for the Terminally Ill & Bereaved

Having the support of external bodies, support groups and people who understand what you are going through is invaluable. They can provide emotional, practical and financial advice and point you in the direction of the further help that you need.

Support groups understand how you are feeling and what you have to cope with on a day to day level. There is no one who can understand you situation better than someone who is going through or has already gone through it. If you want details of local support groups that you can physically attend then the best starting point is your local GP but you can also find help from your local council, citizens advice, local newspaper or hospital unit where you are getting treatment.

Ask your doctor or nurse for details of specific local groups and also check notice boards for details of groups in your local area. Although you may be apprehensive about attending such groups, the support you will gain will far outweigh any initial concern you may feel.

Some people would rather cope within their own family and other people feel an immediate need for external support. As a carer it is vital you seek out external support as the person who is ill is in no position to be offering you the shoulder you need to maintain your strength. Don’t be scared to look for or ask for help. There is only so much one person can cope with alone and if this is going to be a long journey then you should take whatever assistance is offered.

In this section you will find a series of links to specialist information, advice and support networks whether you are terminally ill, caring for a loved one with a life-limiting illness or bereaved.
