About this call for practice examples

In this call for practice, we are looking specifically at pre- and post-bereavement support to help carers manage the impact of death on their life.

Although support for dying people has major benefits for their carers, in this call for practice we are looking specifically at support aimed directly at carers themselves. This might be practical or emotional support, and it might start before the death. It might be support for young carers, or adult carers, or whole families.

If your organisation has a practice example to share, we would be very pleased if you would submit it for consideration. If you are not sure whether your practice example fits the call, please email Alison Penny for an initial discussion.

Practice examples will be sent to the National Bereavement Alliance (NBA) steering group, who will select examples to publish on the NBA website. In deciding which examples to publish, they will be looking for a clear description of the work, strong rationale and evidence of impact and outcomes for carers facing or following bereavement. After the steering group has considered practice examples, we will contact you to let you know if we will be publishing your example, and to give you feedback if you would like. 

If selected, your example could feature on our website and in national presentations.

The questions that follow ask about the context and rationale for your work; what you offer; the impact and sustainability of your work. If you would like more space, you can download a version of the form to complete. The call will remain open until 31 December 2017, but we would be grateful if you would submit as soon as you can.
