Bereavement Support

The Blackdown Support Group run regular peer support groups as well as one to one telephone support for those experiencing bereavement. No one can prepare you for the empty space left after a bereavement:

• The long days and nights
• The empty house
• Feeling out of control
• Being alone
• The strength needed to go out by yourself
• New decisions to be made

Sharing these small issues with others helps you to focus on yourself. We host two informal monthly sessions of listening and sharing for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. The sessions take place at the Blackdown Healthy Living and Activity Centre in Hemyock on the second Wednesday of each month 2.30 - 4.00pm and the second Friday of each month, 10.30am - 12.00pm. Our volunteer can also arrange to speak to you privately if you prefer.
