Bereavement Service Evaluation

We are delighted to share our independent evaluation of our highly valued HPCVS Bereavement Service. We are incredibly proud of our service and feel that this report justifies our passion and pride in this work. Our success, our high standards of care and determination to ensure consistently available support for bereaved adults even during and perhaps even more crucially, after, a global pandemic.  The strengths of our work are clearly expressed throughout this report in the most powerful way, the voices of our service users.

The work of this thorough and comprehensive report took place from November 2021 through to February 2022 and included;

  • several ‘group in session’ observations (with the kind permission of our participants)
  • follow on focus groups with group members
  • an online survey 
  • a postal survey with past and present service users
  • interviews with our delivery partners and volunteers.      

Thanks to continued support from the National Lottery, we currently have five HPCVS bereavement support groups open across the High Peak.

A huge thanks also goes to Kerrie Fletcher who pulled this report together and has produced something we are all incredibly proud.
