Bereavement Hub

Bereavement Hub website hero

The Bereavement Hub exists to support those who are grieving, it provides them with the opportunity to talk to people who may understand how they are feeling because they have been through a similar experience.

Following the success of the Bereavement hub sessions at the start of 2023, we will be starting a new, 6-month block of sessions from 25th October 2023 into early 2024. We will be running a session over the Christmas break as we have identified a need to keep the sessions running to offer support over the festive period.

Each session is free to attend and will focus on a different part of the grief journey.

The invitation to come along to our Bereavement Hub is extended to anyone in and around the Dudley Borough and you do not need to have a connection with the Hospice.

These are some quotes from people who we have welcomed to previous sessions:

“Just being able to speak to people who understand my pain has been a big comfort.”

“Being in an environment where I do not feel the odd one out has been so helpful.”
