Local charities work together to help those experiencing bereavement
The Bereavement Help Point is a free and welcoming space for anyone who has experienced a loss. It is an opportunity for people to meet and talk with others who may be experiencing similar feelings.
The Bereavement Help Point launched on 4 September 2023 at The Hub in Mulberry Park, Bath. Sessions will be held on every first and third Monday of the month, they are free of charge and are available to drop-in.
Attendees can expect to be welcomed by friendly volunteer hosts who have been specially trained to support those experiencing bereavement.
Jacqui Orchard, The Carers’ Centre says:
“Experiencing a loss can be extremely difficult and upsetting. Those with experience of caring for their loved ones often share that they feel a mix of complex emotions. No one should face bereavement alone. That’s why we are so pleased to be working in partnership with Dorothy House and We Hear You to offer this crucial service in the heart of Bath.”
Dominic Denny, Dorothy House says:
“We are really excited at Dorothy House to be working with The Carers’ Centre and We Hear You to open a new Bereavement Help Point. We know that alone we cannot offer everyone in our community the care and support they deserve, so working alongside partners to co-produce these important groups is vital. They are a brilliant example of the community supporting each other, something we are really passionate about here at The Hospice.”
Lucy Kitchener, We Hear You says:
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Dorothy House and The Carers’ Centre to provide a new Bereavement Help Point in Bath. These partnerships are incredibly important to us as it enables us to collaborate our skills and resources to provide a service in the local community for anyone who has experienced a loss. We all experience bereavement but that doesn’t make it any easier. We hope these help points provide people with some support in knowing that they do not have to face bereavement alone.”
If you would like to visit the Bereavement Help Point, there is no requirement to book your space - just come along to The Hub, Mulberry Park on the first and third Mondays of the month.
