Finding comfort and hope
Losing a son or daughter at any age is one of the most heartbreaking things you can ever face as a parent. Whether this has happened to you recently or some time ago, we invite you to join us on a Bereaved Parent Support Weekend. Here you will be with others who understand your situation first hand and are ready to listen and offer you reassurance and hope for the journey ahead.
Making time for you
Many have found that taking an entire weekend away in safe surroundings, where everything is catered for, is a time when they can begin to explore their feelings of sadness and loss.
During a Support Weekend, you will have time to seek help and advice from compassionate people who have also experienced the pain of losing a son or daughter. Listening to how others have started to rebuild their lives will give you hope and the assurance that you do not have to put on a brave face and cope on your own.
It is also an ideal opportunity to make caring friendships with people who you could turn to for understanding and support in the future.
Relax in comfort
Our Support Weekends take place in beautiful and relaxing settings providing opportunities to walk, take time out by yourself and be in the company of other parents who are facing similar challenges.
Time to learn from each other
During the weekend you will have opportunities to:
The weekend will be led by Bereaved Parent Support Co-ordinators Kath and Mike Coulson and their team. They lost their eldest son Philip, then aged seven, in 1994, and know how difficult life can be following bereavement.
Whether your son or daughter died last week, last month, or years ago, if we can help you on the difficult ‘journey’ of grieving, we would love you to join us. If you have ever felt that no-one else understands the pain, heartache and the devastation you feel since your son or daughter died, this day is for you.
The cost of attending one of our Weekends is £150 per person, including all meals and accommodation, from Friday dinner through to Sunday lunch.
This year’s weekend event will also include Brother and Sisters: Life after loss, an event for bereaved adult siblings who have lost a brother or sister. For more information click here.
