We are holding a free drop-in event on Wednesday 22nd May from 11am – 5pm ‘Good Grief’ at Brighton Unitarian Church New Road for anyone who has experienced loss or would simply like to learn more about grief.
Good Grief is open to everyone and is being held as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival and following on from National Dying Matters Week (13-19 May). The aim of the ‘Good Grief’ day is to encourage people in the community to feel more comfortable talking about death and bereavement. Visitors will be offered comfort and advice and have an opportunity to meet with people from local support groups as well as counsellors and volunteers from Martlet’s own bereavement services.
Jane Cato, Martlets Bereavement Services Manager said: “The aim of the day is to offer an opportunity for people who have experienced loss or who are anxious about dying and bereavement to drop in and see us for support, information, reassurance and hope.
“Everyone’s experience of grief is different and along with sadness there can be anger, depression or even isolation. We will be helping people to understand the grieving process and find ways to speak about grief and have a sense of it being a manageable experience to remember loved ones without feeling overwhelmed. Anyone is welcome to visit at any time.”
