Join our Facebook group
If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Colchester, 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 Essex meet up. Our email is email@example.com or you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Nashwa is 19 years old and in her second year studying Law with Human Rights at the University of Essex. Originally, she is from Syria but her family lives in Dubai, and Essex is her home for now! She really values the memories that she has, as well as making new ones so she puts in a lot of effort and love into the different relationships in her life. After losing her dad while being at university, Nashwa feels that it is so important to remove the discomfort around talking about loss and is so excited to be around people that are willing to talk openly about their bereavement with people who will understand.
Lauren loves to travel and has recently returned to the UK from living in Australia. Lauren now works in homelessness supported housing in Colchester and considers Essex home. Lauren usually has a coffee in one hand, loves listening to music, going on adventures and loves everything eco-friendly!
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.
