Free Lothians Bereavement Support Programme

We believe bereavement is a journey to be travelled not an illness to be cured or a problem to be solved.

Loss can leave you bewildered and confused. Grief can make you feel very isolated.

You’re not alone. The Acorns bereavement service is here to help. Our team of specialist advisers provide meaningful support and practical guidance to support anyone facing a loss. The Acorns bereavement service provides meaningful help and support to anyone facing a loss.
