Trivallis will pay tribute to those who have lost their lives during the coronavirus pandemic by supporting the National Day of Reflection on 23 March – the first anniversary of the day on which the UK first went into lockdown.
It is estimated that over six million people have been bereaved since the pandemic began, unable to properly say goodbye or comfort their family, friends, and colleagues in their grief.
Ian Thomas, chief executive at Trivallis, said: “We are supporting this campaign to take time to reflect on the past year and remember those who are no longer with us. We will be supporting by asking colleagues to observe a minute of silence at midday and by sharing our ‘beacon of light’ over on our social media channels as a mark of respect.
“Throughout the rest of the week, we will be using our social channels to share stories of the remarkable people in our communities who have provided a lifeline to those in need during what has been an extremely tough year. We will also be highlighting the support available to colleagues and tenants from Trivallis and a number of our partner organisations for anyone who has been impacted by the pandemic and loss.”
Launched by Marie Curie, the National Day of Reflection encourages the nation to participate in a minute of silence at midday on 23 March. Members of the public are also invited to shine a light from their doorsteps at 8pm GMT as a beacon of remembrance.
Trivallis has developed a dedicated COVID-19 support page on its website with information on support available with things such as health and wellbeing, rent and finances, and personal safety.
If you live in Wales and have been affected by loss, Cruse Bereavement Care can offer support to you. You can find out more information on the Cruse website or by calling 08088081677.
