Late Spring

Bereavement support

What does it do?

If you have lost a loved one, you may find that others who have lost a loved one can offer valuable comfort and support.

Late Spring is a network of support groups for anyone aged 60+ who has been bereaved. Sessions provide an opportunity to remember with others who understand and to remember that, in the midst of the pain, there is still life left to live.

About Late Spring

We are not a counselling service, but an opportunity for people to meet with others in a warm, friendly, and supportive environment.

Each group aims to meet twice a month for a couple of hours in a local venue. Over coffee and cake, together we look to the future without forgetting. Within the groups, we provide an opportunity for you to talk about and remember openly your loved one. These sessions occur in relaxed and friendly settings with others who understand about how being bereaved can make you feel, simply because they are 'feeling it too'.

The groups give you the opportunity to just be 'yourself' as we gently stroll together along the journey we all face following the death of a loved one.
