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.
January 2022 Update
All our groups are running after the Christmas break. From week commencing 24th January our face to face groups are back to running in person in North London. We also continue to offer Zoom support groups, running both weekly and monthly. See below for dates of our next groups or check out the SLOW calendar.
“Being listened to and understood is for bereaved parents a ray of hope amidst a world that has fallen apart.”
Whether it’s weeks, months or years since your child or sibling died you’ll be welcome here at SLOW.
