Essential support functions: bereavement counselling, funeral guidance, Inquest support, police liaison, Serious Incident Reports, dealing with the media, pastoral care, financial support signposting, Citizen’s Advice, Criminal Justice System, NHS referral pathways, private therapy, third sector resources, legal and litigation signposting, children’s services, employment, school liaison, resource provision (e.g Help is at Hand).
