Description

Background/aims: The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in global mass bereavement; in the UK alone there have been 140,000 deaths to date, with a disproportionate impact on Black, Asian or minoritized ethnic (BME) communities. Voluntary and community sector (VCS) bereavement services including hospices play an important role in bereavement support. We aimed to determine services' perspectives on access to their support.
