National Grief Awareness Week, 2–8 December 2021

The Good Grief Trust’s National Grief Awareness week aims to raise awareness of all aspects of grief, its potential impacts and how you can support someone else through a bereavement.

While no one can pretend to know exactly what another person’s grief feels like, what we can be sure of is that it’s a highly personal experience. Some people describe anger, feeling cheated, numb, fearful, lost – but these are just some of the huge range of feelings that can come with the loss of a loved one. Some days might feel overwhelming, while others feel a bit easier.

As part of National Grief Awareness week, The Good Grief Trust has a variety of online and in-person events. They have a vision of normalising grief and bereavement, turning them from taboos into something that people can talk about openly and find support with.
