That all members of the Tasmanian community are able to access and receive appropriate, compassionate bereavement care when needed.
To value, connect and support both formal and informal providers of bereavement care who live and work in our communities.
The Aim and Functions of the Bereavement Care Network
To improve co-ordination and strengthen partnerships to support the delivery of bereavement care by connecting people; identifying services; and promoting education and support for people involved in bereavement care.
The specific functions of the bereavement care network will be to:
- Collate and maintain a directory of services on a regional and state-wide level. This will include up-to-date information such as the service location, contact details, and service parameters including client restrictions and costs.
- Manage an accessible list of members and organisations comprising the bereavement care network. Inclusion of a description of their background, credentials, expertise and service/s offered will facilitate ‘warm’ referrals.
- Provide a listing of relevant educational resources that are accessible to formal and informal bereavement care providers.
- Distribute relevant information on current news and events. This may include upcoming forums, workshops, conferences, CPD events, grants, tenders and job opportunities
