Bereavement Cafés

Here at St Clare, we feel that some of the most meaningful support you may experience when you have been bereaved, is through connecting with others who have had similar experiences. 

Bereavement Cafés aim to connect local people together, to support each other throughout grief. Everyone is welcome to access this free, community-led service – whether your loss was recent, or a long time ago.

Our Cafés and online communities (which we host through Facebook), offer a safe space to meet others; speak about our experiences; ask questions; share resources; and make new friends.
