One to One Listening

We recognise the healing power of being heard and understood, which is why we provide dedicated one-on-one listening sessions.

Supporting Schools

Grief can be particularly challenging for children and young adults to comprehend and handle. At The Bereavement Café, we offer support to local schools seeking to help their students navigate through the difficult process of grieving.

We provide practical strategies, resource recommendations, and understanding to help educators and school administrators provide a supportive environment for students coping with loss. Our aim is to equip the next generation with the tools they need to process grief in a healthy and constructive way.

Fresh Coffee & a Chat

We are not a counselling service. All staff and Volunteers are trained and skilled in Understanding Grief, Bereavement and Loss, coupled with their own individual lived experiences of bereavement enhances the value of their support and understanding in this unique setting.
