Bereavement Support Course

Bereavement is a journey to be travelled and not an illness to be cured or a problem to be solved. Bereaved people need the companionship on that journey of those who understand loss and grief, and who can give reassurance and support as specific issues are faced. Experience shows there is more that is ‘normal’ in loss than otherwise. But we also know it’s hard for people to find that out in the isolation of their grief.

During the six weeks of each programme, there will be an opportunity to look at the bereavement journey; health issues; caring for yourself; money matters; socialising; thinking ahead. Above all, Stepping Stones will offer an opportunity for you to meet in an informal setting with other people who know the reality of loss.

The six-week programme is open to all who are living with loss.

There is no charge for participation.

While there’s no “right time” to come to us, our experience is that the programmes are best suited to those in their first year of loss.
