Bereavement Support Groups

Our support groups meet once or twice a month currently in Derby and Ashbourne with plans underway to expand the network. 

The support groups are open to anyone who has experienced a bereavement – whether recently or several years ago. 

The groups are available, free of charge, to people of all ages, regardless of whether or not Wathall’s arranged their loved one’s funeral.

The informal and welcoming group sessions are the chance for members to meet like minded people in a social and safe setting with support from skilled and experienced facilitators where you can share stories and express feelings freely knowing others will understand, be non-judgemental and supportive.

Our aim is to enable you to live a full and meaningful life in the here and now as well as in the future.

“At this group, I found help and friends who were willing to spend time with me and listen to my story. People who understood how I felt as a widow. The group leaders really make you feel welcome”.
