Lost : a tool to support people that might lose/have lost loved ones during Covid-19

Over 50,000 people have sadly lost their lives to Covid-19 already. The emotional & practical impact of this during the current outbreak means planning for a funeral and grieving are much more complex. Current social-distancing rules means funerals are held in a much more restricted way. We want to create an accessible site that allows people to access accurate, up-to-date information on how to prepare with practical guidance and links for further assistance, alongside advice on how to deal with grief and where to seek emotional support.

    I am part of a social hub that have done this to help people cope, also have experience of family based therapy, and a fan of design thinking x

    Hi Joe, I've got personal experience with this and feel like this is hugely underrepresented. All I've seen on loss is numbers and death tolls so I am really keen to join this and add a human centred approach.
