A Coronavirus Crisis Bereavement Line has gone live today and is being funded by the Clinical Commissioning Groups across Essex in support of all bereaved adults and children.
The service is being run by the charity Havens Hospices and is open seven days a week from 9am - 6pm.
It’s a telephone helpline for bereaved adults and children whose loved one has died directly or indirectly as a result of Coronavirus.
Anyone who calls can speak to an experienced counsellor or bereavement worker who can listen, support and offer advice during these challenging times.
