The Bereavement Cafe was formed in 2017 by a group of people who realised there was a need to support people who have suffered the loss of a loved one, with the aim to provide a meeting place for people to share their feelings and experiences with others in the same situation.

We are not counsellors – just people who will listen without judging, and give support and encouragement where needed. We believe our informal approach is a proven way to deal with bereavement and loss, rather than counselling as we feel bereavement isn’t a problem to be solved.
