This is a Short Breaks in practice resource on Support for bereaved short breaks carers. This is helpful guidance for parents, and health, education and social care practitioners. This publication asks the question - what sources of support are available for short breaks carers who experience the loss of a child. It responds and states that services should develop a local resource pack for both families and short breaks carers outlining potential sources of bereavement support. It expands on this and gives examples of best practice.
