Facilities Information

Main Services Provided

The Trust’s Bereavement Coordinator works with staff throughout the Trust to promote quality end of life and bereavement care.

The Co-ordinator does not provide a bereavement service but will signpost people to appropriate services

The Northern Trust’s booklet ‘When someone dies’ contains practical information which may be useful to you in the days ahead. Helpful information on living and coping with bereavement and a list of relevant support agencies is also included.

There is an annual ‘Snowdrop walk’ on the third Sunday in February each year, which gives families the opportunity to plant snowdrop bulbs in memory of their baby or child. The Trust also holds a remembrance service annually in May for the parents and families of children and babies who have died in the Trust. The books of remembrance are re-dedicated at this service each year. The dates for this service will be posted on this website and in the local press. Many parents and family members choose to write some words in memory of their child which is then included in the book and there is no time limit for the inclusion of information.
