Connect Group for Bereaved Grandparents

We understand that the death of a grandchild can be isolating, and is a challenging and unique experience. You’re likely experiencing worries for your child as they grieve, as well as experiencing your own grief. At times, it may feel as though people don’t understand what you’re going through, or how to best support you.

This Connect Group is an informal online group for bereaved grandparents to meet and talk to others in a similar situation. 

With two Redkite Social Workers there to guide the discussion, you will be able to safely share your experience, support each other and learn strategies that have been helpful. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

We welcome all grandparents (official and unofficial) and encourage new attendees to join. You’re welcome to share as much or as little as you like.

This group is for you if:

  • You are a grandparent (official or unofficial) 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
