Support & events for students

We host a range of events and support groups for students and recent graduates who have lost someone, as well as friends who want to show their support. You may want to speak directly about grief, or simply be in the company of others who understand.

The thought of it was daunting but I found it was easy and relaxed and such a positive experience

Peer Support with The New Normal

We have an online group twice each month, for students and recent grads experiencing grief. Whether your loss happened years ago or recently, no matter your relationship to the person or how you have processed your grief so far, you are welcome.

This is in collaboration with The New Normal (TNN), a charity that facilitates simple, open conversations between those who find themselves in similar moments in their life journey.

The meetings are free peer-peer support groups intended to create non-judgemental spaces with no pressure to speak. TNN also have meetings for different communities including Queer Good Grief, Black and Brown Good Grief, It’s Complicated, Boys Talk, and many more.

First time in five years I’ve not felt alone in the grief or loss I’ve suffered, in a really safe space

Pop up events – for grievers & friends

Every now and then we run extra events to connect people in similar situations, as well as friends who might like to show their support. These are open, caring spaces but without so much pressure to talk directly about loss. Examples include music nights, film screenings and supper clubs. We hope to start running these more regularly, but for now, sign up to our newsletter and follow us on Instagram to stay updated. You could also check out the social meet-ups for bereaved young adults run by Let’s Talk About Loss.

So good to feel that grief and loss can be shared
