New Bereavement Support line to assist staff and public during the COVID-19 pandemic
A new national free phone bereavement support line has been launched by the Irish Hospice Foundation in conjunction with the HSE.
The national free phone service, 1800 80 70 77 is available Monday to Friday from 10am to 1pm.
The support line aims to provide a confidential space for people to speak about their experience or ask questions relating to bereavement.
Callers will be listened to with compassion and be provided with emotional support and information on any practical issues that may be helpful.
