Grief Kind Spaces

Area served: National

Website: https://www.sueryder.org/grief-support/about-bereavement-and-grief/grief-kind/grief-kind-spaces/

Sue Ryder Grief Kind Spaces are weekly, in-person drop-in sessions held in the local community and run by trained volunteers. The sessions provide a safe, informal and supportive place for people to come together and share their experiences of grief, helping attendees to feel heard and less alone. The sessions are welcoming, inclusive and open to anyone who is over 18 and has experienced a bereavement, whether you want to attend regularly to connect with others in similar situations or just drop in for a quick chat.

They have seven hospices and palliative care hubs across the UK and their aim is to introduce one Grief Kind Space in the area around each centre over the coming months. The spaces are volunteer-led, with volunteers receiving training and guidance to help attendees connect with each other and share their experiences of grief through peer-to-peer support.
