Support for Bereaved Parents and Siblings in London

We are here to support you following the devastating loss of your child. We provide an informal, quiet space for you to meet with other bereaved parents and share your experiences.

All face to face groups suspended, but other support now available

We are very aware of how important the support provided in our groups is for many of you but unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended all our face to face support groups from 16th March 2020 until further notice.   

We are now providing alternative ways of supporting bereaved parents during these challenging times.   During the pandemic SLOW is offering bereaved parent members – new and existing – phone and email support as well as video conferencing via Zoom.  Plus you can also connect with other bereaved parents via our Facebook page.

For more information and to access support please contact us at or on 07532 423 674. 

Thank you and take care.

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.
