Whether your spouse or partner died recently or some time ago, one of the most positive things you can do is to create some time and space just for you. Many have found our Widowed Young Support Weekends allow them to do just this.
From the moment you arrive you are in the company of others who have all experienced first-hand the pain of losing a partner. It is a safe place to share honestly and openly, as much or as little as you feel able.
By committing to a whole weekend away, many have found that they have time to explore their feelings of sadness and loss, seek help and be supported by those who understand, renew their strength and find hope. It is also an opportunity to form caring friendships with people you could turn to for understanding and support in the future.
Widowed Young Support events are for anyone who has lost a partner up to and including the age of fifty or older if you still have dependent children.
There will be opportunities to listen to practical suggestions about how to live through bereavement and loss including sessions on:
- Responding to feelings of guilt, anger and despair
- Strategies to help overcome the pain of loss and shattered dreams
- Comfort, hope and finding a way forward
- Practical ideas to help us cope in the tough times
- Supporting our children through their personal loss
- Thinking about a new relationship
- The different issues faced by men and women
Our weekends take place in a welcoming and peaceful setting – the ideal place to offer you comfort and reassurance, no matter where you are on your bereavement journey. Each year our venues are carefully chosen to cater for your needs. All accommodation is en-suite and you will find plenty of opportunities there to rest and enjoy times of refreshment.
