A new service has been launched by Listening Ear to support anyone in South Yorks 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.

Referrals can also be made via our online referral form.

This is a service for anyone who has lost a loved one and who needs support, advice or guidance.

Who can refer:

  • Self
  • Police
  • Primary Care staff
  • Hospital bereavement services staff
  • Mortuary staff
  • Funeral Directors
  • Coroner’s Office
  • GPs
  • Crematorium and bereavement services staff
