Bereavement Cafe

A Bereavement Café is a space where people can talk about the pain of loss, and also find courage and strength in knowing they are not alone.

As a Hospice Care family support practitioner Bianca Neumann-May says, “Losing a loved one can turn your world upside down and make you feel lost. Everyone experiences grief in a unique way. We want the Bereavement Café to be a place where people who have had similar experiences can share their stories.”

The cafe is not designed to be a counselling session but is a supportive environment for reflection, conversation and a place where people will be able to find mutual support and encouragement.

At a Bereavement Cafe you will find people who will listen, and respect your story.
