Bereavement room to help families

The Department of Health and Social Care is launching a new service to support bereaved families on the Island.

The Relative Support Service will be officially launched next Friday, September 15, when Hospice Isle of Man will unveil a room to house the scheme.

It was established in memory of 14 year old Jake Watson, who died last year after a severe asthma attack.

Jake's family will be present at the official launch event, which takes place close to the first anniversary of his death.
