The added challenge of additional needs

When everyone is feeling stressed and challenged by the impact of lockdown and social distancing on what was, until recently, 'normal' life, it can be hard to see beyond our own needs and fears. But without doubt, some individuals and families are having a much tougher lockdown than others.

Coping when all is loss

When someone you love dies, words, however kindly meant, are often not enough. Wise befrienders to those who have been bereaved know that just being there is what is most appreciated. Solidarity in silence can be the most precious gift a comforter can bring.
