  • Confidential space for people to speak about their experience or to ask questions relating to the death of someone they cared about
  • Listen to what a person says about what has happened
  • Provide comfort and emotional support.
  • Information that might help the caller, including information on practical supports


The service is confidential. What you tell us will not be shared except in certain circumstances where, for safeguarding reasons, we may need to share your information with the emergency services. On the call, we might ask your first name, because it’s a natural question to ask in a conversation, but you don’t have to tell us if you prefer not to.
