Photo and bio coming soon!
Ashley is 24 years old and is currently studying for a Masters in Social Work at the University of Sheffield. Ashley is passionate about improving children’s well-being and mental health and felt that social work would help her do this. Ashley lost her Mum suddenly in 2018 due to an alcohol addiction. Ashley has seen the devastating impacts that addiction can have throughout the lifetime and hopes when she is qualified to help children and young people who experience it. She enjoys baking and cooking, and going to concerts and the theatre. Ashley also loves to procrastinate with Netflix and Disney+ (a welcomed distraction from assignments).
Beth is 25 and currently a psychology/neuroscience PhD student at the University of Sheffield. She loves whales, pizza and the brain. In her spare time she likes to talk about science and how the brain works on her instagram page. Her dad died when she was 11 – and it took her a really long time to get to grips with her own grief. She hopes to use her own experiences of grief to help support others who are going through similar situations. She is passionate about talking and being open about the rollercoaster that is grief. She hopes to meet others who’ve had similar experiences and together help break some of the stigma about talking about loss.
How will I know where you are?
Our meet up Hosts will be wearing white t-shirts with Let’s Talk About Loss written on them, so you can spot us in a crowd!
Will everyone be sad?
Definitely not. Although we’ve all been bereaved, we aim to have lots of fun at meet ups and chat about lots of things, not just grief. You won’t be asked or expected to share your grief story unless you want to.
What will we do?
Most of our meet ups are activity based, so we are doing something and not just sitting around chatting. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!
How do I sign up?
You don’t need to tell us you’re coming along – feel free to just turn up! If you want to chat to someone before coming along, email us using the form on this page, and we can always meet you beforehand.
