Bereaved people across the East Midlands are being failed by a lack of support including in the workplace, according to a new report.

Published by the National Council for Palliative Care, it revealed data that shows nationally, a third of people who were bereaved whilst in a job did not feel their employer treated them with compassion.

The research found that in the East Midlands, more than half said they would consider leaving their job if their employer did not provide proper support. The research also found considerable public backing for bereavement support in the workplace, including paid bereavement leave and flexible working.
