Our groups offer the chance for you to get together at regular walks, pub lunches and other social activities. Our support line is available Monday to Friday, where you can talk to one of our team members.
Coping with bereavement can be shattering and will affect all of us at some point in our lives. We know that we all experience grief differently and that how we do so is determined by many different factors eg., our age and personality, cultural background and religious beliefs, previous experiences of bereavement, circumstances, relationship with that person and how we cope with loss etc.
Facing the loss of someone special is difficult and can be painful. After a person has died you may need time, space, practical and emotional support as the weeks and months progress.
What we offer
If you are aged 60+, have been bereaved and would value the opportunity to meet with others who understand, our groups offer the chance for you to get together at regular walks, pub lunches and other social activities. They are places where you can be yourself and feel supported as you explore what life without your loved one will mean for you. For information about our groups, please contact us using the details at the top of this page.
Our support line is available Monday to Friday (10am-4pm), where you can talk to one of our team members. They will be able to link you to all the information and support that is available and arrange for you to receive a regular call moving forward if that would help. Please contact us on 07584 148 508.

Age UK's Bereavement guide
The death of someone close to us can be one of the hardest things we ever have to go through.
Whether it’s expected or not, it can affect us in many different ways – and, unfortunately, we just
have to cope the best we can. Grief is very personal and there’s no right or wrong way to deal
with losing someone you love. But this guide explores how you might be feeling, why you might be feeling like that, and some of the things that could help – now and in the future.
Could you support us as a volunteer?
As a Bereavement Support Ambassador, you can help support older people in the county who've been bereaved.
