"Since my first visit to SLOW after the sudden death of my daughter I have found the group has given me comfort, inclusion and the knowledge I can share my deepest feelings of shock, pain, isolation, anger and fear with those who have felt and are feeling the same."

SLOW Member

"Being listened to and understood is for bereaved parents a ray of hope amidst a world that has fallen apart."

– SLOW Member

"SLOW has been a lifeline for me, it is a place to go to talk about my child, to understand what I'm feeling isn't unique and that there are other parents who have 'survived' the death of their child."

– SLOW Member

"SLOW works for me as it's informal; there are no weekly themes or 'grief exercises', we just meet, listen and talk. Even though the pain of my losing my little girl is still there, I no longer feel isolated as I have SLOW."

– SLOW Member

"I will forever be indebted to SLOW and the incredible work they do."
