A new service has been launched by Listening Ear to support anyone in South Yorks and Bassetlaw who has been bereaved during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Accessible through a freephone number, the service offers meaningful support, advice and guidance when it’s needed most.  Although it’s not a counselling service, it will be delivered by trained counsellors who understand the difficulties and turmoil faced when someone loses a loved one.   Available from Monday-Friday between 10am and 5pm, the free service is open for self-referral as well as taking referrals from emergency services, GPs or a range of other frontline services.

Referals can also be made via our  online referral form.

Funding for the service has been provided from public health and NHS services in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.
