In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Rennie Grove Hospice Care is offering a new style of Support Group to local people who have been bereaved in the last two years.

Funded by the Kop Hill Trust, part of the Heart of Bucks Community Foundation, the Online Bereavement Support Group is an eight week programme of support which will run via Zoom.

The aim of the group is to help reduce the loneliness and isolation which often accompanies grief by creating a welcoming, safe and confidential online space to meet others.

Members of the group will be able to have conversations about their grief, share stories, thoughts and feelings and find ways of coping.

The sessions will be run by staff and volunteers from Rennie Grove’s Family Support Team.

Discussion topics will explore the wide range of responses to grief, how to build resilience with a variety of different coping mechanisms and how to move forward by setting realistic goals.

The group will run weekly on a Thursday afternoon - starting on November 26 - for four weeks until December 17. It will resume for a further four weeks on January 7.

Rennie Grove welcomes applications for a place in the group from any local people over the age of 18 who have been bereaved in the last two years.

Anyone interested in applying or finding out more about the Online Bereavement Support Group should contact Debbie Playford by emailing [email protected] .

You can also fill out an enquiry form on the charity’s website.

The closing date for applications for a place in this group will be 5pm on Friday, November 20.
