Bereavement support for adults

Bereavement Help Points

Many of us find talking about dying hard because we’re afraid of saying the wrong thing. But we know from experience that talking about death can be incredibly positive.

If you are experiencing or have experienced bereavement (regardless of how long ago), you will be made very welcome at our Bereavement Help Points. 

There will be information on coping with both the practical and emotional aspects of losing a relative or friend, a chance to chat over a cup of tea with one of our support volunteers and perhaps meet others in a similar situation.

The following face-to-face sessions are available.

Please note, our Bereavement Help Points will not be running during the Christmas period. The Help Points will return the week commencing the 8th of January 2024.
