Bereavement Support

We are acutely aware of the life-changing impact of bereavement.

As a result, in April 2013 we hosted two seminars in Crewkerne led by internationally-renowned speaker, author and grief counsellor Dr Bill Webster. Feedback from both the public and professionals was overwhelming, and emphasised the demand for ongoing, local bereavement support, which at that time was otherwise unavailable or inaccesible.

Our response was to recruit a team of volunteer facilitators and outsource training for them from Dr Webster's Centre for the Grief Journey UK. Our first 6-week programme began in Crewkerne in January 2014, and we now arrange and co-ordinate easily accessible group sessions three times a year.

These groups, 'Grief Journey South Somerset' are free of charge to attend and are open to anyone who has been bereaved, or who may be supporting family members or friends after a loss.

In partnership with the Centre for the Grief Journey, our online portal, Grief Solutions, also provides immediate advice and reassurance from your own home, 24 hours a day.
