Online Bereavement Support group

Our Online Bereavement Support group is a 7 week online program for people who have cared for someone who died in the last 12 months.

The discussions we have involve

  • Listening and sharing personal experiences
  • Normalising the grief journey
  • Reducing feelings of isolation
  • Discovering personal strengths
  • Building resilience
  • Creating social networks
  • Connecting to other useful resources

 

Sessions are run at a set time, on a regular day each week for 7 weeks.

Cost: free
