Helping you Through Bereavement - St Nicholas Hospice Care

General Details

Bereavement support is an essential part of St Nicholas Hospice Care's work.

Grief can affect people in different ways. It can leave them with emotions which may include sadness, anger, guilt, relief or confusion and a feeling of being lost or overwhelmed. Our Family Support Team provides someone to talk to. 

Support is based on need, and may vary from a telephone call or a chat over a cup of tea to bereavement counselling where issues can be worked through in depth. Meetings can either take place in the Hospice's private counselling rooms or in your own home.

Bereavement Support Group

The Bereavement Support Group meets weekly for six weeks and is organised twice a year. It offers a safe setting in which to explore feelings, share information and simply be with others in similar situations.

Stepping Forward Walking Group

Walk and talk with a group of like-minded people and trained bereavement volunteers. Walking with people who have also experienced bereavement may just be the thing to get you back on track. Stepping Forward is open to all who are bereaved. The group meet once a month for an hour's walk.

Bereavement Activity Groups

We also run occasional bereavement activity groups, such as cooking, DIY and arts and crafts, which consist of four sessions over three to four months.
