After postponement of the original event, we are pleased to invite you to Bereavement is Everyone’s Business: The official launch of the UK Commission on Bereavement’s landmark report – live stream. October 11, 10:15-12:00. The events of the last few days following the sad death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II have sparked important conversations around grief and mourning and we know it is crucial to share the Commission’s findings and to continue this national conversation about bereavement.
Register here. Please note, if you had previously registered for the September event you will need to re-register.
Working in partnership with a number of charities, researchers, and people with lived experience of bereavement, the UK Commission on Bereavement was established in June 2021 to explore the adequacy of support for people affected by bereavement across the UK nations, and to make recommendations to better support bereaved people both now and in the future.
Over the last year, The UK Commission on Bereavement has been reviewing evidence from hundreds of people and organisations who have been affected by bereavement during the past five years.
At this event, the UKCB will launch its report, outlining its key findings and recommendations. The event will be hosted by the chair of the commission, The Right Reverend and Right Honourable Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, the Bishop of London, along with other commissioners.
The Deputy Minister for Mental Health and Wellbeing, Lynne Neagle MS, will be providing a response to the report findings in the context of the Wales National Framework for Bereavement Care.
The event will bring together charities and community sector organisations, academics, policy makers, influencers and many others to hear for the first time the findings of the UK Commission on Bereavement.
There has been a lot of focus on how the UK will deliver an economic recovery from the pandemic, but much less about how society will recover – including the response to the pandemic as a mass bereavement event. Please join us for this important event which will help to shape the future of how we respond to bereavement in the UK.
Please register for your place and we look forward to welcoming you on October 11th.
