Our annual bereavement information evening, Living with Loss, is being held online this year on Wednesday 8 December. It is free to attend, register here.
We know the past 2 years have been difficult and isolating and we want to provide connection and solace for all those grieving. So whether you have experienced a bereavement this year or at an earlier time, or you are concerned about a child or friend who is grieving and wish to help, we encourage you to attend. We will share some reflections on bereavement and give information on the supports that are available.
When: Wednesday 8 December, 7:00-8.30pm
