Join our Facebook group
If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Bournemouth, 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.
If you don’t have access to Facebook, that’s no problem! Email us to chat about the next Bournemouth meet up. Our email is email@example.com or you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
She is an advocate for Mental Health & Caregiving and works with people struggling with self-abandonment and burnout who feel the need to re-prioritise themselves. Otherwise, if you’re looking for her outside of work, look for the redhead in a plant shop or on the dancefloor eating bread!
After her dad’s diagnosis, she spent 2 years giving her all to her stressful yet promising job as a Senior Event Manager in London, whilst going back to France every other weekend, and burning out from it all. She ultimately decided to interrupt her career and care for her dad during his final year. After his passing in 2019, Alix decided that she wanted to spend her time helping other people through what she had struggled with on her own. She believes that when you are ready to reach out, someone should be there to listen.
Becca is 22 and has called Bournemouth home for that whole time (in fact she’s never even moved house – crazy right?!)
Becca is currently studying to become a teacher whilst working for NHS but in her free time she can usually be found shopping or visiting a random coffee shop or bakery she found on Instagram!
Since before Becca was born her Dad lived with Crohns Disease, something Becca took inspiration from when she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes as a child. In 2016, Becca lost her dad due to complications with his condition, when she was just 15. Becca is passionate about child bereavement and ensuring no young adult faces loss alone. Becca also believes all people facing a loss who identify as LGBTQ+ should have a safe space to grieve.
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.
