Meet your Reading Hosts

Lucy

Lucy is a co-host of the Let's Talk About Loss Reading Group! She found Let's Talk About Loss following the loss of her dad to cancer in June 2020 and has met some of the most amazing friends here. She is an avid grief ambassador and is pushing forward to inspire a world where grief can be recognised and understood by everyone, even before experiencing a bereavement. Some other bits about Lucy - she has a wonderful 7 year old Springer Spaniel called Alfie and she lives with her incredibly supportive fiancé Siobhan!

Emily

Emily has been bereaved for almost 10 years after losing her Dad to cancer in 2012 when she was 17. She is a passionate ambassador of grief, especially as a young adult, and of mental health too. She works in a Secondary School, supporting students who don’t speak English as their first language. She loves writing and also doing Karate and is excited to meet you at a meet up 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.
