This resource explores how social practitioners can better support people who are dying and bereaved. It is aimed at frontline practitioners such as social workers and the managers and supervisors that support them. The resource covers: what people who are dying or bereaved want and need; the evidence around providing better support; the role of social care and social work; and how practitioners can increase their confidence and capabilities around end of life care. It includes four practical tools to help with person-centred care, person-centred planning, coordinating care, and emotional support for practitioners. Quotations from people with lived experience are also included. (Edited publisher abstract)
