Scottish Bereavement Charter

NES is participating in a coalition of organisations to develop and launch a Bereavement Charter for Children and Adults in Scotland, outlining national goals and principles for care around grief and bereavement. This work will soon be going out to wide consultation with stakeholders and the general public. Feedback on the current draft of the charter will be taken via online survey and several face-to-face consultation events. Comments will be welcome on queries such as:

  • If the Charter is easy to understand
  • If it addresses the issues around bereavement care that are important to the reader
  • Whether the format is appropriate
  • If there are any statements that should be changed, and what wording to employ if so
  • Overall thoughts on the Charter and if any part seems to work particularly well
