Covid-19 Update:  We are still unable to meet at the Spire Café, but are continuing with the Monday evening meeting (7-8.30pm) by using Zoom. For anyone struggling with bereavement and would like to chat, we will do our best to support you.  We are aware this is a very difficult time for bereaved people affected by isolation due to the lockdown.  Our small team is able to maintain telephone support for those who need help. Please contact us on 07999 368128 or e-mail on info@friendstogetherbereavement.org

A group supporting those who are bereaved, through the difficult days, weeks, months and even years following their loss.


Informal get-togethers over a cup of tea, provide opportunities to talk.

Bereavement is not a medical condition or a health issue, but left unsupported it can become one.

  • Are you bereaved and finding it difficult to cope?
  • Trying to cope with those horrible dark days that follow?
  • Do you need somewhere to go and somebody to turn to who will understand?
  • Do you want to talk and feel that people just expect you to have ‘moved on’?

If you would like to meet socially with other bereaved people who will understand how you feel, join us.

It’s impossible for anyone to completely understand the massive life changes which bereavement brings unless they have experienced it first-hand.

Friends Together is run by volunteers, who are not trained counsellors or medical practitioners, but people with a listening ear and time for others.

‘People avoided the subject, but I needed to talk, I just felt even more alone. They behaved as if he’d never existed, as if they thought I should just forget [and] move on. Forget? 50 years we’d been together, I didn’t know how to exist, live, be, without him. Thank goodness for Friends Together, here were people who did understand, who didn’t avoid the subject, I had found a safe place to breathe, a place to laugh. My new friends just accept me as I am. I love being free to talk about my husband, or the tennis, or my pot plants, anything really. Life is not over, we know that is true, we are Friends Together.’ Anon
