Our meetings are open to all bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. Our meetings provide emotional support and a safe place for feelings to be expressed.
For some, it is the only place where they are able to comfortably talk about their child and their grief.
Everything discussed at the meetings is confidential and no one is required to speak. Some people believe it’s harder to talk in front of strangers about something as
intimate as the loss of a child, but because everyone else at the meeting has had a similar experience, they understand much of what you are feeling.
Just listening to the experiences of others is often helpful in understanding confusing emotions and learning that there is no right or wrong way to make this journey.
We suggest you try at least three meetings before you decide whether we are “right for you.” Every meeting is quite different. If you feel your first meeting
didn’t meet your needs, please try us again as we are always working to address varied aspects of the process.
There are no fees for membership or to attend the meetings.
