The Bereavement Café provides people who are bereaved the opportunity to meet others in their local area who are going through a similar situation. Those attending are warmly invited to share their experiences with each other in an informal and supportive way. People find meeting like this can help make connections and friendships with others. The café will be run by bereavement service; staff and volunteers will be available to provide support and advice. It is a place where there is consideration of others and where we may relate to some experiences and others we may not.
