Join our Facebook group

If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Essex, 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.


Our Hosts in Essex are Nashwa, Rosie and Lauren. We can’t wait to meet you at the next meet up! There are photos of your lovely Hosts below and their bios are included too. Email essex@letstalkaboutloss.org if you want to chat to us before coming to a meet up.


Rosie is a 27 year old charity fundraiser from Chelmsford. She enjoys doing things that are creative and loves trying new things and meeting new people. Rosie can’t wait to start hosting meet ups and meet new people who can relate to the weird world of grief!


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!
