Bereavement Hubs

Bereavement Information Hubs are part of the Compassionate Communities initiative – encouraging people to support one another by creating supportive environments which reduce isolation and improve the health and well-being of members of the community. Bereavement Hubs are run by trained volunteers and offer the chance for you to express your feelings and share experiences with others who are experiencing loss and grief.  The hubs are also a great space where you can access information about other services that you may find useful.

Bereavement Hubs are free to attend and there’s no need to book in advance.
