Organisations will also have a film made, receive help with press and publicity and be given a set of promotional materials.

Bereavement Help Points

Many of us find talking about grief difficult but at St Giles we know from experience that talking about bereavement and loss can be incredibly positive.

That is why we operate a series of bereavement help points across the region.  Some of our help points are run in partnership with South Staffordshire Cruse Bereavement Care.

If you are experiencing or have experienced bereavement (regardless of how long ago or the type of bereavement), you will be made very welcome at one of our free weekly drop-in Bereavement Help Points.

The Herbert Protocol

The Herbert Protocol is an early intervention scheme designed to help locate “vulnerable people” and pays specific attention to people deemed at risk of going missing who have dementia.

The latest figures for Staffordshire show that in 2015 – 16, 1058 adults were reported missing with 32 (3%) having dementia at the time of the missing report.

The Alzheimer’s Society (2015) estimates that 60% of people living with dementia will “go walking” outdoors at some point in the course of their condition.
