Calling all Nottingham-based young people! Our meet ups in Nottingham have been running since March 2018 and they are really fun! We meet once a month, and we would love you to join us.
Everyone is welcome and we’d love to meet you – there is no pressure to tell us anything about your loss, in fact, we often don’t talk about it! Instead we just spend time enjoyed each other’s company and exploring the beautiful city of Nottingham.
Saturday 19th September @ 11am, River Trent
We can’t wait to see you for our September meet up, where we’ll be going for a walk along the River Trent (we’ll be observing social distancing at all times of course). There are only 6 places for this meet up so please do join the Facebook group to RSVP, or email email@example.com.
Join our Facebook group
If you’re aged 18-35, have been bereaved, and live in Nottingham, 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.
Will Hosts in Nottingham, but we’re currently looking for a co-Host! We’d love you to apply if you’d like to help run our group in Nottingham. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!

Will I fit in?
The short answer is: yes!
Want to hear from some of the people who come along to the group? Here’s what they had to say:
“The group is full of like-minded people who know the feelings you have experienced – so they can provide the best support”
“It sounds weird but the group is so fun! Not what you would expect from a grief-related group, but we really have a laugh and hardly ever talk about “the sad stuff”. I’ve found a group of friends who I can be totally myself with – and that is awesome”
“It can be very helpful being around people who have similar experiences to you”
Want to see what we get up to?
Here we are messing around at Wollaton Park and going for an evening stroll down the River Trent. We’re a group of young people exploring Nottingham and having fun, knowing that whenever we need support, we have a place to talk.
We know that coming along to a group for bereaved young people can be really scary, but we really are just completely normal people having fun and taking terrible selfies. Email us if you want to join in.
