The views expressed in this response represent knowledge gained through research at the Social Policy Research Unit (SPRU). Since 2001, the Unit has maintained a stream of research and enquiry into the economic implications of death of a family member. Most recently, the Unit has conducted an influential study of the economic implications of death of a partner (Corden et al, 2008) which was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. Members of the research team advise the Money Advice Service in development of services for bereaved people, and a current study of socio-economic implications of bereavement for Scotland, and are active members of academic and practitioner forums for palliative and bereavement care, and organisations which support carers.
