Link Bereavement Group

Losing a partner or loved one is probably the most traumatic experience you will ever face.  Learning to adjust your life after their loss is often painful, and takes time.

With time, people learn to cope with the loss, often being able to rebuild their life and take pleasure remembering times shared.

Link meets every 3rd Wednesday in the month from 1.30 - 3pm in St Dunstan's Church, Upton.  Just come along, or contact Bill or Matt the vicar.  We would be happy to come along with you for your first meeting or visit you at home.  Lifts are also available.

Everyone copes with grief in their own way.  There is no one way you should be feeling at a particular time and feelings and emotions are often mixed.  It can be helpful to express and share these feelings with another person.  We are prepared to listen to you and we understand something of how you are feeling.  It is often helpful to talk to someone outside the family.
