Jake Quickenden giving help on grieving

For many of us, the D word has become a no-go area since the pandemic. So many have experienced loss that we worry about saying the wrong thing or putting our foot in it – which appears to be making those grieving feel lost.

In reality, those grieving want to spend more time talking about their loved ones.
