The Government is taking a cross-Government approach to address bereavement support and help ensure that families and friends of those deceased get the support they need.

In May, the Government awarded £4.2 million to mental health charities and charities providing bereavement support. This funding is part of an overall £750 million package for the voluntary sector announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in April.
