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.
June 2022 Update
We are currently running face to face bereaved parent support groups, both weekly and monthly, in London. We are also offering support groups virtually via Zoom for bereaved parents and adult siblings across the UK. All groups take place during school term times and will be back up and running after the Spring half term.
See below for dates of our next groups or check out the SLOW calendar.
