Carers Support West Sussex – Bereavement Support & Impact Report

Bereavement Support & Workshops

One of the certainties in life is that we will all experience the loss of those close to us at some point. However, having this knowledge still does not prepare us for the complexity of the feelings we will experience when the time comes. The depth and breadth of the emotions felt will be different for everyone, no one can predict the intensity

Here at Carers Support West Sussex (CSWS), they completely understand that everyone will experience their own unique journey in coping with loss. At the same time, we believe that connecting with others in a similar situation will provide you with a sense of support and a means of developing your own coping strategy.

Carers Support offer two ways to access bereavement support:

Bereavement Workshops

The next workshop cohort starts on: Wednesday 15th & 29th September 2-4pm. These workshops are specifically for carers who have been bereaved within the past 6-9months.

Monthly Former Carers Group

This is a group specifically for those carers who have experienced bereavement, either having lost someone recently or a while ago. If you are feeling the loss and would like to join with others who are sharing a similar experience this is an opportunity to talk through grieving and to acknowledge that there is no expectation for what ‘should’ be happening, or indeed when it occurs during bereavement. Bereavement is different for each and every one of us , for some the caring role may have ended or changed into new roles, however it is affecting you, joining this group can give you the opportunity to talk with others who may have or are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings.

This group takes place on the 3rd Thursday every month via Zoom* 10.30am – 12pm.
