The Bereavement Support Programme

This eight week group programme enables people with the shared experience of bereavement to connect with others as they together express their feelings and thoughts regarding their loss. More than a support group, it is a guided programme, led by a counsellor, exploring different post-bereavement wellbeing topics each week.

"The service was exceptional and compassionate throughout the course, I was able to talk about a lot of feelings I hold inside."

Our group has a maximum size of 10 people so you can connect with others who are also experiencing a loss.
