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.

To register for any of the groups please contact:
Peggy ten Brinke, 905-827-8800 or 1-800-387-7127 x 2323
