At SLOW we know that your grief cannot be fixed, and we do not strive to ‘make things better’.
Instead we give you space and support, so that you may, in your own time, slowly rebuild your life.
In this way, we believe there is hope to be found in connecting with other bereaved parents and siblings, relief in sharing the pain of grief, and company in bearing the unbearable, alongside others who are living with loss.
