Service Update - Dortothy House - July 2022

Bereavement Help Points and support groups provided by Dorothy House and partners

The Bereavement Help Point (BHP) is a community based drop-in service, welcoming anyone who has suffered a bereavement. It’s a space to meet and talk with others who may be experiencing similar thoughts and feelings. 

Last year Dorothy House joined forces with Carer Support Wiltshire to jointly run new Bereavement Help Points in Wiltshire. Together we run BHPs in Devizes, Chippenham and Corsham and Dorothy House runs BHPs in Shepton Mallet and Malmesbury. Trained by Dorothy House, volunteers at Bereavement Support Keynsham also now offer group support. 
 
Bereavement Help Points are free with no referral required and no time limit on attendances. Please signpost your patients, their families and carers and click here to find more information on our website. 
 
For all referrals to Dorothy House and any enquiries regarding our services, please phone 0345 0130 555
