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, relief in sharing the pain of grief, and company in bearing the unbearable, alongside others who are living with the death of their child.
Being listened to and understood is for bereaved parents a ray of hope amidst a world that has fallen apart.Member quote
Whether it’s weeks, months or years since your child died you’ll be welcome here at SLOW. Find a support group near you.
