Millions of people across the UK have faced bereavement during the COVID-19 pandemic. The disruption and challenges of this time have impacted people's experiences of grief, whilst also affecting the bereavement services that support them.


This national study aims to investigate the grief experiences, support needs and use of bereavement support by people bereaved during the pandemic in the UK, and the adaptations, challenges and innovation involved in delivering bereavement support. It is being conducted by a team of researchers at Cardiff University and the University of Bristol, with funding from UKRI via the Economic and Social Research Council.
