If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Glasgow, you can join our Facebook group for people who have been to, or are wanting to come to, a meet up. It’s a safe space only for those who have been bereaved, and you’ll be able to find out all the latest information about the meet ups. Request to join by clicking here.

Callum joined the Glasgow meet up group as a member but wanted to get more involved with an aim to provide a male perspective / point of contact for those less open to look for support. He is a 23 year old PhD student at Strathclyde University studying wind energy systems, so is always free for a wee chat to get away from the computer screen. He frequently attends and coordinates STEM outreach events so is used to making challenging things fun and engaging others in activities (loves an icebreaker!).
Emily is a writer and performer. She has recently turned 30 and is absolutely fine about that fact. She first came to Glasgow to study and flatly refused to leave once she got her degree. She lives in the southside with her black-and-white cat, Malcolm.
Ruth works in a nursery for Glasgow City Council, so she spends her time singing nursery rhymes and wiping snotty noses. She hates winter for that reason! Ruth is 23 years old and lives in the South side of Glasgow, being the middle of three sisters has caused a serious case of middle child syndrome. After losing her Dad in 2018, she also lost her close cousin in early 2019. She is no stranger to grief and the struggles young bereaved people face in our society. Ruth wants everyone to feel more comfortable talking about grief, so people feel less alone. She is looking forward to meeting new people through Let’s Talk 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.
