DATE: 20th April
DETAILS: We cannot wait to see you for our next meet up. Stay posted with all the Zoom details in our Facebook group or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like email updates!
Why an online group?
After the Covid-19 pandemic hit, we knew that we needed to ensure our meet ups were always accessible, wherever you lived. So we started a group that is completely online! If you’re aged 18-35 and have been bereaved, you can join this group – either as well as, or instead of, one of our location based meet ups.
Is it only for UK residents?
No! The beauty of an online meet up is that anyone can join from anywhere in the world – one of our Hosts is based in Texas! We’d love to see you and will ensure that all meet ups work for as many time zones as possible.
Join our Facebook group
We have a Facebook group you can join – 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 Online meet up. Our email is email@example.com or you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Priya is a 32 year old corporate lawyer – currently living in London but originally from Newcastle. She lost her Dad suddenly in 2011 and started running as a way of dealing with her grief. In 2018 after losing her auntie (she called her Bee) who was like a second mum to her, she felt totally lost. She wants to talk to people who understand what it’s like and hopefully help people open up about their own grief.
Becky is a 26 year old marketer from Coventry. Becky loves travelling, exploring new places, going for afternoon tea and bottomless brunches with her sister and friends. Becky lost her mum suddenly in May 2019 and hopes by hosting this group, she will help others that find themselves unfortunately in this club.
Alex is an activist who lives in Manchester. After losing his father to oesophageal cancer in 2016, Alex truly realised the discrepancies of support that was being offered to those who were bereaved. As such, he started campaigning to increase the support that bereaved young people received and founded No Child Left Behind UK, which aims to support all bereaved young people during their grieving process. Alex is extremely excited to be helping all young adults navigate their grief with Let’s Talk About Loss.
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.
