Suicide Bereavement has been described as “grief with the volume turned up”, it’s effects on families, communities and society as a whole are devastating and tragic. 

Everyone affected by suicide will have a unique experience through the grieving process and it is extremely important that timely and appropriate support is available. Pete’s Dragons provide a bespoke service to anyone in Devon who has been affected in this way.

How can we help?

  • Provide a resource pack tailored specifically to your needs

  • We offer a listening service which can be through face-to-face visits, over the telephone or even by email, whichever is right for you

  • Offer practical advice and assistance on issues such as: how to inform others of the death, dealing with the media, wills and probate, applying for benefits, funeral arrangements, inquest advice and support and/or anything else that is causing concern

  • Source and liaise with other appropriate support services to ensure that you get the right help for you just when it is really needed

  • Children and family fun days designed to bring together those with a shared experience and send a clear message that it is ok to smile, have fun and enjoy what life has to offer.

  • Regular 8 week Grief Recovery courses which teach small and correct steps to resolve grief and say goodbye to the pain, isolation and loneliness caused by significant emotional loss.
