The Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Wellbeing has announced the launch of the National Framework for the Delivery of Bereavement Care in Wales. It sets out how in Wales we can respond to those who are facing or have experienced a bereavement.
The National Framework for the Delivery of Bereavement Care in Wales can be accessed at: https://gov.wales/national-framework-delivery-bereavement-care
A summary of responses to the public consultation on the draft National Framework has also published today and can be accessed at: https://gov.wales/national-framework-bereavement-care
Bereavement support grant
To support the implementation of the framework, we have established a £1m bereavement support grant for our third sector partners.
Organisations applying for the grant will need to demonstrate that they are adding value to the existing bereavement support provision across Wales and are addressing identified gaps in bereavement services.
Full criteria for accessing the grant can be found at: https://gov.wales/national-bereavement-support-grant-2021-2024
The deadline for grant applications is 4pm, Friday 26 November 2021.
