                            Help in Bereavement - was set up in 1979 as a response to the perceived needs of those suffering the grief,
                                                             loneliness and social isolation caused by losing someone they love

                                             The organization offers a free visiting service                                                                                                 covering -
                                            Portsmouth, Gosport, Fareham, Locks Heath,

HiB Visitors :
1.Our Visitors are just ordinary people from all walks of life;
2.They give their time free of charge, to help people suffering from Bereavement .
3.At the moment it is estimated that their contribution to the community amounts to  about 4,000 hours per year visiting people on a one-to-one basis, and running various support groups;
4. Many of them have suffered bereavement themselves;
5. Our Visitors are checked and cleared by the Criminal Records Bureau;
6 they receive specialised training (with assistance from the Rowans Hospice,  and others), to recognise the needs of the bereaved regardless of when the bereavement happened.

                                         We offer support for as long as it is needed

In some cases a state of unresolved grief can go on indefinitely. However long it takes, the objective of the Visitor is the same - to help the bereaved person to reach the point where he or she can pick up the pieces and resume normal contact with the outside world. Apart from the listening service, Visitors can be of practical assistance to the bereaved; helping with form filling for example, or finding out about local clubs and groups they can join.

                            Visitors are available to talk to you on the telephone ,and will be happy to                                                         meet you in your own home or at another agreed place

                            Our Visitors have made a significant difference to                                                  many peoples lives !
