Parent and Carer Guide

Bereavement following murder or culpable homicide is complex. Not only do families have to deal with a sudden, unexpected death – they also have to deal with the way in which their family member has died. This booklet can help adults decide with what to say to children, provide guidance around common reactions to grief and trauma, as well as practical tips and advice around key stages in their journey, such as saying goodbye, funerals, social media, and court.
