If you are bereaved of your partner or spouse and have young children, we can offer you support.
We are a friendly group and have been bereaved for various reasons. Our children are aged from 12 months to 18 years and we have the facilities to occupy younger children on our meeting night.
We meet once per month on the first Tuesday of each month, at the KeadbyChildrens Centre on the Keadby School site from 6.30pm -8.30pm and the adults can spend time sitting and chatting whilst the children spend time with a play worker. The group is very mixed and we have both bereaved fathers, mothers and grandparents with care who attend.The children are well supervised by a qualified social worker and a previous school teaching assistant who will use play therapy techniques to assist your child to communicate their grief
Heather, who helped set up the group is a qualified and registered Macmillan Palliative Care Social Worker who has 26 years experience working in the field of bereavement and with children can support families on the night also.
Come along and give us a try, it may help you through a difficult patch or time of year and there is no pressure to attend every month.
It doesnt matter how long it has been since your bereavement, if you are in need of a friendly, understanding face we can help.
This is a safe environment where you can attend with your children, for you all to be supported together.
