Please note, whilst there has been some interest to attend this group either individually or as a couple there has not been sufficient numbers to form specific groups. Therefore there is the potential in the future to run a couples group and individual carers group. Please register your interest and let us know which of these you would be interested in.
The Bereaved Parents and Carers Group is an online group, which will meet on a Tuesday evening for ten monthly session via Teams.
Three months after the ending there will be a reunion session offered.
Each session will be for one and a half hours from 18.00-19.30 on Teams and an invite will be sent for you to join.
The dates are; 12th March 2024, 2nd April 2024, 14th May 2024, 11th June 2024, 2nd July 2024, we will have a break through August, 3rd Sept 2024, 1st Oct 2024, 12th Nov 2024, 3rd Dec 2024, ending session 14th Jan 2025.
The reunion will be on the 18th of April 2025.
There may be group members joining from all three of EACH`s hospices.
You can join the group from the comfort of your own home. We would just ask that you are as away from the activity in the house as possible and are not interrupted.
The group will be a closed group, which means that new members will not join the group once the group has begun.
The group will provide a safe space to meet with other bereaved parent/carers ‘who also know’ and ‘get it’ as they too are grieving for their baby, child or young person.
The group provides a space where you may gain understanding of your own grief processes from learning and understanding about grief through a shared experience with others.
The discussion will be led by the identified needs of the group.
We will also offer to sharing ideas and resources that other bereaved parents have found helpful.
The group will be facilitated by two members of the Wellbeing team.
Please note that this is not a public event, it is only open to families who access EACH services.
