Children’s Grief Awareness Week 2021 raises awareness of bereaved children and young people in the UK.
Clara Francis describes her daughter’s tragic story, how she was helped by SLOW in the aftermath of her death and her determination to help other bereaved parents.
As Baby Loss Awareness week approaches our new Bereavement Support Services Manager, Nikki Peterson, shares her daughter’s story.
We have an amazing team of 12, running and fundraising for SLOW on Sunday 10th October for the Royal Parks Half Marathon – many running in memory of children lost far too soon.
Bereaved adult siblings (18+) are warmly welcome to join our monthly Zoom meetings on the first Thursday evening of every month.
After a year of Zoom remote workshops this weekend SLOWsibs returned with a face-to-face session called ‘Herbs for Hearts’, held outside at the beautiful Ecology Centre in Islington.
We’d love you to run and fundraise for SLOW. We have a number of places for the Royal Park’s Half Marathon in London on 10th October 2021.
On Father’s Day, Rob Delaney’s podcast will resonate with bereaved dads at SLOW and beyond.
It’s volunteer week and we’d like to thank our many, many special volunteers who help SLOW run in so many valuable ways.
After a year of Zoom meetings some of our groups are returning to face to face. We’ll continue with Zoom meetings for those unable or apprehensive to return in person.
SLOW wants to hear from our members about their experiences of coming to our bereaved parent support groups and we are looking for volunteers for our focus groups, to be held in May and June 2021.
SLOW is proud to be launching a new adult sibling support group from April 2021.
Gill Mann, mother of Sam and author of ‘A Song Inside’, writes so beautifully about the life and death of her son Sam, the heart-break, the universal themes of parents’ grief, the senseless chaos, the world shattered, the intense beauty in nature, and the glimmers of hope.
Beautiful words from Clara Francis – our bereaved parent facilitator – as NGAW 2020 comes to a close.
It’s Baby Loss Awareness Week 2020, a week for raising awareness about pregnancy and baby loss and also a time to reflect and remember our lost children.
