Losing a child is a devastating experience and for many of us it was hard to find the right support at the right time. SLOW has been and is a lifeline for so many of us. SLOW has grown from Nic and Susie meeting round a kitchen table to the charity it is now.
We want hear from our members about their experiences of coming to our bereaved parent support groups and being part of SLOW, so we are working with Geena Saini and Millie Witcher, two students from the University of Hertfordshire.
Your feedback and views will help us understand how our support helps you, so we can make improvements to how we run our groups as well as plan our next steps as an organisation.
Millie and Geena will be running a number of 90-minute focus groups via Zoom and we want these groups to represent a range of views from long term members, newly joined, monthly or weekly members but also those who don’t attend anymore, all views are welcome.
And, if you’d prefer to share your views privately, they will also be holding a small number of telephone interviews.
They plan to record the sessions but please be assured that all views will be anonymised.
If you are interested in taking part in either the focus groups or the interviews, or if you would simply like to know more about the research, please contact Kelly Carter at email@example.com by the end of April. She’ll then be able to forward your details onto Millie and Geena who can provide you with further information.
