Coffee Groups for bereaved parents and carers

Parents often tell us that their family and friends are essential support for them throughout their cancer experience, but when their child dies, it can be hard for others to understand what they’re going through.

These groups are held once every two months and are facilitated by two Redkite social workers. They are a safe, relaxed, and open forum where you can meet other parents and carers who understand. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

We welcome new and returning participants and you are free to attend each group, or irregularly as it suits you and your schedule. There are no commitments required and you are welcome back at any stage.

Topics include:

  • Remembering and sharing memories of your child with others
  • What is grief, and what does it look and feel like?
  • Managing special days and events
  • Parenting – supporting siblings
  • The impact of grief on relationships – partners, family, friends etc.
  • How do I plan for the future?

We also welcome you to talk about any other topics you’d like to discuss.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a parent or carer connected to a child who was aged between 0-18 when they died after a cancer diagnosis
  • You want to meet and talk to other parents, guardians, and carers in a similar situation
