Welcome to Slow
Our aim at SLOW is to provide an informal, quiet place for bereaved parents. Some say that our group provides a haven from the ravages of the 'outside' world at a time when life has been irrevocably changed by their child's death.
We know that the death of your child disturbs every aspect of life, including all of your relationships with family, friends and the world at large.
SLOW is a place to be yourself, in the utterly changed circumstances in which you find yourself, and take strength from the support of others, before returning to daily life and it's challenges.
