This is a fortnightly webinar for National Bereavement Alliance and Childhood Bereavement Network members, who are managing bereavement services in the UK. The webinars are intended to keep the sector updated on the implications of Covid-19 for bereavement services, and to share useful information and resources.
Registering will give you access to the whole series of webinars but please feel free to attend or not each fortnight. If you don't receive an email confirmation after registering, please check your clutter or junk folders.
Just a reminder: we make an audio recording to forward to people registered for the webinars, and your participation in the webinars means that you consent to this.
