Meet up in... London

Next meet up date:

DATE: 20th April

TIME: 11am

LOCATION: Parliament Hill Fields on Hampstead Heath, meeting @ the tennis courts

DETAILS: We can’t wait to see you at our next meet up and catch up with how you have been! Yes! We will be going on a short walk/ramble and all paths are flat. We will keep our pace to match everyone in the group. After the ramble, or if the weather isn’t great, we will stop at the nearby Parliament Hill Cafe for a chat and drinks/food if wanted (but no pressure to buy anything).

Meet your London Hosts

A photo of Carl, a white man with black square glasses, smiling at the camera
Carl moved to London in 2022 after spending 10 years in Cardiff. In his spare time, he enjoys keeping fit at the gym, boxing, occasionally plays rugby and is part of a gaming group. Carl lost his mum suddenly in October 2015 just after starting his final year of university, then his friend a month later in a similar way. He wanted to become a Host to help others at the start of their grief ‘journey’ not be so lonely or lost.

She is currently a medical student and hopes to provide the same support network to others that Let’s Talk About Loss did for her when she first moved to London. Emily is a passionate advocate for conversations around death & grief being more normalised in both personal and professional environments.

They are also a wheelchair user (although their wheelchair coincidentally isn’t in this photo!). Those three things mean they are passionate about community support, as well as making conversations accessible and welcoming; which is what they hope to do as a Host.

Teni is 24 years old, born and raised in London. When not working Teni can be found on a football pitch or a beach somewhere! Teni loves a good challenge and regularly takes part in mental health & leadership programmes, particularly for young women. She is buzzing to meet all you Londoners at meet ups soon!

MEET UP FAQs

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.
