Group Support Sessions

Bereavement Support Group

This peer support group is open to anyone whose loved one was cared for or supported by Willow Wood Hospice and runs on the first and third Wednesday of every month between 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Willow Wood.

On the first Wednesday we meet at the Hospice in the Day Services Lounge from 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start until just after 8pm. On the third Wednesday we go out for a social meal, again the times are the same. We change the venue for the meal from time to time.

If you have a link with the Hospice and you thing that this group may be of benefit to you, we would love to see you.

Due to the present restrictions, we ask that you take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) at home before coming to the group. If you cannot do so you can take a test at Willow Wood.

If you would like to come, or need further information about the group, please contact the Hospice on 0161 330 1100 and leave a message for me, or you can contact me on 07722 256443.

Thank you.

Rev Eddy Inglis (Lead Chaplain)
