As people try to come to terms with the loss of their loved ones during this pandemic, James Brown & Sons Funeral Directors has partnered with Cruse Bereavement Care to help provide wider support to bereaved people in Northern Ireland.
The partnership with James Brown & Sons Funeral Directors will provide funding to help Cruse recruit and train 20 new Bereavement Volunteers at this much needed time to provide online grief support sessions. These sessions will address subjects specific to this pandemic, including the highly sensitive and emotive issues around funeral restrictions and relatives not being able to be with their loved ones at their time of death.
Cruse Bereavement Care thanked James Brown & Sons Funeral Directors for this new partnership which will help Cruse continue to provide vital support to bereaved people in Northern Ireland as they navigate their way through the pain of loss in 2020.
Paul Finnegan, Director of Cruse NI said: “Grief is being felt across the country on an unimaginable scale due to the impact COVID-19 is having on those who have been bereaved, whatever the circumstance. This partnership will help ensure that the bereaved are offered support when they need it most.”
James Brown of James Brown & Sons Funeral Directors said: “Being unable to offer any physical comfort to the bereaved in the way we have become used to has been extremely difficult for us this year as caring is at the very heart of our business. We believe that this support service is being offered to the community at a truly critical time. Processing grief and loss can be almost unbearable for some in normal circumstances and this has been heightened beyond comprehension during the pandemic. We are privileged to be able to help those who are on their grief journey at this difficult and challenging time with Cruse Bereavement Care.”
