The Bereavement Café

A drop-in group for anyone who has experienced bereavement

Losing a loved one can turn your world upside down and make you feel lost. Talking about how you feel can help.

Everyone experiences grief in a unique way. The Bereavement Café is a place to meet others who have had similar experiences to your own. It is somewhere you can speak freely and share stories with others coping with losing a loved one.

The Bereavement Café is a space to talk about the pain of loss but also find courage and strength in knowing you are not alone. Here it is ok to cry and laugh, to be angry or frightened. You may be more of a talker or better at quietly listening. Sometimes it’s good just to have a cup of tea and hear people’s stories.

The Bereavement Café is not counselling. It is a drop-in session. Bereavement is a natural process and most people do not need counselling for it. There will be information available on the other services we offer.
