We are delighted to inform you that at the Board meeting of the 7th of January 2014 the Board unanimously accepted and approved proposals for the establishment of a pre-bereavement Family Support Service. This will complement our current services and expand the range of services we are able to offer the people of Hexham and Tynedale.

The service will initially be developed as a one year pilot and will be subject to review and Board consideration about how we then take the service forward beyond the pilot year.  We are confident that this is a welcome development.

We are pleased that the Rev. Janet Jackson has accepted the post of Lead for Family Support Services and will lead the development, implementation and review of this service.
