Bereavement Support Groups

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.

Bereavement Walking Group

A walking group for people grieving the loss of a loved one.

Join trained volunteers for fresh air and exercise with others who are grieving. Share your experiences, receive support – or just walk. If you wish, you can stay for coffee and conversation at a local coffee shop at the end of the walk.
