Welcome to Let’s Talk About Loss, a safe space to talk through taboos and address the reality of losing someone close to you when you are young.
A 2018 survey by Co-op Funeralcare found that 16 to 29-year-olds are the age group most likely to bottle up their grief and not talk about it, with 24% saying they “kept it to themselves” when suffering a bereavement. We’re passionate about starting conversations and ending that taboo.
We run peer-led meet up groups in cities across the UK for young people aged 18 to 35 who have been bereaved at any stage. We believe that by meeting other young people who have experienced loss, we can share our stories and our struggles without fear, judgement or awkward silences. We’d love you to join us – find your local meet up group here!
In light of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, our meet ups are all virtual. We still have our blog, and you can submit your story by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for visiting our website, we hope you find comfort and support here.
