Our aim

In our staff grief and bereavement network, we provide a safe space for you to breathe and grieve. We understand the deep pain of loss and offer meditation and mindfulness practices to help heal your heart. Our compassionate healing approach is supported by guest speakers who share their own experiences, as well as peer-to-peer support from others who have walked a similar path. You are not alone in this journey, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

Meditation and mindfulness for loss

Feeling lost in the waves of grief? You're not alone. Learn how meditation and mindfulness can be your guiding light in the darkest moments. Losing a loved one can leave us overwhelmed with pain and confusion, but incorporating these powerful practices into your routine can provide comfort and strength as you navigate through difficult emotions. 
Uncover an oasis of peace within yourself as you embrace the soothing power of meditation. Discover how mindfulness can help you acknowledge your feelings without being overwhelmed by them. By bringing awareness to the present moment, you'll find solace in honouring the memory of those we've lost while nurturing your own emotional well-being. 
Join our community as we walk together on this transformative journey towards healing. Let's breathe through the pain and awaken to a brighter tomorrow. Embrace love, release sorrow, and find grace within yourself with meditation and mindfulness.

Grief and Bereavement Toolkit

The grief and bereavement toolkit provides information on bereavement, where to go for relevant support and advice, as well as suggestions for helping yourself and others through grief.

The Good Grief Trust

The Good Grief Trust aim to normalise conversations around grief and show that it is a natural – and even transformative – part of life, instead of something to be feared and avoided. 
The Trust have hosted over 150 free events including talks, interviews, webinars and workshops. These events aim to bring people together to gain insight, hear stories they can hopefully relate to and hopefully find support and healing as part of the Good Grief Community. 
The Trust have also launched The Grief Channel on YouTube where you can access over 120 talks from previous events, for free.

Grief support classes

The national bereavement charity Sue Ryder, in association with GOOD, have launched Grief Kind Classes containing advice from bereavement experts to help people better support each other when they are grieving. These classes have been specially designed as part of Sue Ryder’s national Grief Kind campaign, launched in 2021. 
Grief Kind has helped over 100,000 people since launching and these classes form the next stage in the campaign. The classes are 25 minutes of content, divided into five videos structured around frequently asked questions about how to support someone who is grieving.
