Discover how to support yourself and your colleagues when faced with continuous or regular grief through your work.


People working in hospices, care homes, hospitals and other care settings often experience the deaths of patients and residents where they work, but this doesn’t mean each death is easier to cope with.

Hospice UK’s Compassionate Employers programme is running workshops to help care professionals manage recurring and often overlooked experiences of grief through their work.

As a school employee, Mariska felt heart-broken by the lack of support available when she had to start caring for her child. For Carers Week, she shares her experience of being a carer
