Bereavement Charter for Children & Adults in Scotland: What does it mean for health and social care professionals?

This new short animated film that launched today gives an overview of the Charter’s 13 statements and what these mean for health & social care professionals. It aims to show that we can work together to make Scotland a place where individuals who are bereaved find empathy and support in all aspects of their lives. It paints a picture of how our society can become better at supporting people experiencing grief and bereavement, acknowledging that although bereavement is everyone’s business, health and social care professionals have a key role in supporting patients who are bereaved.
