If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Coventry, 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 Coventry meet up. Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org or you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Kat is 32 and is Head of Quality and Operations at a sports academy in Coventry. She enjoys being active, especially swimming, and took on the 10km Marathon swim to raise funds for Macmillan in 2019. One of her biggest passions is supporting people who are grieving, as she knows that when you have been through it, you develop a different kind of empathy and understanding. Kat hopes to see you in the Coventry group and that you will find it helpful to talk to others who have experienced loss.
Emma is a 28 year old social worker. She is social by profession and by personality – she loves meeting new people. Emma enjoys going on long rambling walks. There’s nothing better than fresh air and her favourite Spotify playlist. She has just discovered Harry Potter and is just understanding why it’s so loved, it’s magical reading it at 28. She is really passionate about making grief a topic and something that young people should feel and safe to talk about. Emma can’t wait to get started with the Coventry meet up group!
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.
