Centre for Death & Society

New guidelines to support people bereaved through alcohol or drugs

Our guidelines provide meaningful support to people who have lost a relative or friend to alcohol or drugs.

Our research

Our research relates to:

  • the experience of death and bereavement
  • practice and policy concerning the dying, the dead, and the bereaved
  • how end-of-life practices require yet can foster community development
  • relationships between the living and the dead
  • influences of economics, politics, inequality, social networks, technology and culture.

We are involved with a number of current projects.
