Want to join our Manchester meet up group?

If you’re aged 18-35 and you have bereaved at any stage of life, we would love you to join us at our meet up group in Manchester.

Our Hosts in Manchester are Francesca, Philip and Heather! We’re just organising the first meet up, and we can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to the meet up group.

If you have any questions before the meet up, do email the hosts using manchester@letstalkaboutloss.org.

Hosts

Francesca

Fran is a 29 year old TV Production Coordinator who’s lived in Manchester for 3 years. She is a trained Mental Health first aider & also a workplace Mental Health & Wellbeing champion- so safe to say she enjoys looking after people! She’s a music geek who loves travelling, being outdoors, meeting new people & is a bit obsessed with yoga. Having lost her Dad last year she has found talking to other “griefsters” and listening to people’s stories very comforting, so she’s looking forward to meeting everyone!

Phil

Phil is 28 and works in a coffee shop in Manchester City Centre. He enjoys going to gigs and festivals, comedy, watching and occasionally playing football, travelling and photography. Having lost his mum 7 years ago, he struggled to talk about his feelings to other people, so is looking forward to meeting people in the same situation, make new friends and to help and learn from each other.

Heather

Heather is a Psychology graduate who now works with children. She is really passionate about ending the stigma around grief and making the journey less dark and lonely. She loves music, films and writing, and she aspires to be a counsellor one day. Heather (or any of the Hosts!) is more than happy to privately talk to or meet anyone who may need it before the meet ups if it helps them feel less anxious about attending. She can’t wait to meet you!

Email manchester@letstalkaboutloss.org if you want to chat to the Hosts before coming to a meet up.

Upcoming dates

Sunday 8th December, 3pm – 7pm @ Flight Club Manchester

The Manchester meet up is underway with a visit to Flight Club Manchester for a 90 minute game of digital darts! For anyone who hasn’t visited before it’s really fun and totally do-able for people who’ve never played before! Meet at Flight Club at 3pm and after we’ll head for a cuppa/ drink somewhere in the area.

If you can’t make it this time, don’t worry! There is talk of a festive visit to the Christmas Markets later in the month. Join the Manchester Facebook group (details below) for all the plans.
