Help with bereavement

At Levertons we understand that you may be experiencing grief and that the process of bereavement continues or indeed can start after the funeral takes place. Whilst we are unable to provide bereavement support ourselves, as our client we want to provide you with a free service that can help and we are proud to announce that we are partners with SAIF Care.

SAIF Care services are offered by friendly staff who are trained in counselling and bereavement skills and who will be able to listen and support you.

The Associate Counsellors from SAIF Care are highly skilled and qualified. They will be able to help you to understand your experience of grief, develop self-care, coping strategies and support you to deal with the challenges you may be facing.

SAIF Care is a bereavement service offered by funeral directors who are members of The National Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors (SAIF).

As our client, as long as you are over the age of 18, you can access a range of services for free including:

  • A freephone telephone helpline 0800 917 7224

  • Email support and information help@saifcare.org.uk

  • Up to six free sessions of supportive counselling by telephone, skype or face to face in your local area.

SAIF Care services are available to you from Monday – Friday from 9am – 9pm.

For more information please call us on 020 7387 6075 or contact SAIF Care directly on: 0800 917 7224.
