• National phone helpline provides listening support and can put you in touch with your nearest group; also an equivalent e-mail helpline.
.  E-mail support for LGBTQ – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning.

• Booklet can be downloaded from the website and bereavement packs available on request.
