HILL Bereavement Programme

HILL Bereavement (Help in Loss of Loved Ones) was initially set up in memory of Andrew Hill at the King’s Lynn Centre, with the help of his family and friends. It offers a wide range of support to anyone experiencing loss right across Norfolk and surrounding counties.

How can we support you?

Our team can work with you to ensure you receive the right support, whether that’s attending a group, having 1:1 sessions or counselling. Our bereavement support is tailored to the individual, so we’ll guide you through the options and suggest ways we can work with you.

How our bereavement support can help

Initial 1:1 chat

A discussion on how we can best support you going forward.

Practical information

The team can offer guidance around the practicalities of a loss, such as the ‘Tell us once’ service, and direct you to the right information as needed.

Support tools

We’ll offer resources and techniques that can help you process your situation, including acceptance and the future.


Our counselling service can take care of you and your family if you need extra support.

1:1 bereavement support

We can offer 1:1 support to provide you with a safe environment and a listening ear.

Group support

A Big C facilitator, experienced in grief and loss, will help you to understand the grieving process, offering a safe environment to express your loss. The group looks at areas such as planning ahead, loneliness, anniversaries, birthdays, resilience building and mindfulness.

We’ve helped people like Lisa

Lisa’s father died from oesophageal cancer in 2021. Having already been aware of Big C, Lisa sought their support and started a course of bereavement counselling. Lisa tells her story…

“Having lost the ‘light of my life’ to cancer, Big C were immediately there for me.

The team are so friendly and empathetic and always offer support or they’re there just to listen, which is what you need when you have just lost someone very dear to you.

A fantastic service, support, and team.”
