About us

WBS was established in 1982. Since then the service has grown steadily, but it has remained a local service for the people of Winchester and the surrounding area, run by local people.

A registered charity, WBS is an independent, totally voluntary organisation, with no ties to either statutory or religious bodies.

WBS offers support to bereaved people, either through home visits or by telephone, by trained bereavement visitors. The frequency and duration of these is by agreement between the Client and the Bereavement Visitor.

Our work is with adults only and is a confidential service. All our Visitors are DBS checked and their work is supervised by qualified counsellors.

We do not charge for our visits: our service is free, but it depends on donations and grants from generous individuals and organisations. To donate, please visit the donations page.
