Bereavement Support
Bereavement Online Peer Support (BOPS)

We recognise that during these restricted times, without the usual rituals and presence of family and friends for support, the process of healing can feel delayed, as the isolation and loneliness inherent in grief feels all the more acute and intense.  Therefore connection with others who understand through similar experience, can feel valuable and reassuring.

Our BOPS groups provide an opportunity for that connection by feeling both supported by and supportive of, others in the group.  Each BOPS meets weekly for 6 sessions and is facilitated by members of the Bereavement Team

Every Monday, 2.30 – 4.00pm by Zoom.

Virtual Information on Bereavement Evening (VIBE)

If you are recently bereaved, come and join the Bereavement Team at one of our Virtual Information on Bereavement Evenings.  The evening is an opportunity to explore and debunk some of the myths around grief, the team will provide information and resources, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. Being reassured that what we are experiencing, whilst unbearable at times, is the natural ‘ebb and flow’ of grief, so that we may feel less overwhelmed by thoughts and feelings.

Monthly at 7.00pm on Zoom.

These events are free and are open to everyone. There is no need to have had a previous connection to our organisation. For further information and to book your place call us on 01225 721496
