10. Coping with bereavement
Nobody wants to think about the worst possible outcomes of coronavirus. But sadly it’s possible we may be affected by bereavements, whether personally, supporting a team member who is bereaved, or through our work supporting people in the district.
If you experience bereavement, or need to support a family member, a friend, a colleague, team member, or someone you deal with professionally, here is some of the support that is available.
