Meet others who’ve lost a loved one and share your experience in our bereavement support groups.
Our support groups give you the opportunity to meet others who are grieving the death of a loved one, share experiences, and explore ways to move through your grief – all in a caring and understanding atmosphere.
Support groups run all year round across Halton, and may focus on a particular type of loss (spousal loss, loss of an adult child).
These groups are offered free of charge through the generosity of our volunteers, funders and donors.
