We are very much looking forward to the launch of our Family Loss Cafe on 26th October from 2pm-4pm at The Community Room, Tesco, Askham Bar, York.
This is a free event for anyone who is currently or who has previously experienced loss. It is our hope that these events will run on a regular basis to provide families with a safe and supportive community to share their experiences of loss and get information and help around this if needed. Loss can be very isolating and lonely so it is really important that we have a space that we can feel seen and heard in, a space that is free from stigma, a space where we feel able to speak openly about loss and its effects. There will be lots of lovely crafts and activities for Children and Geraldine Mace will be on hand to give top tips on dealing with loss and explaining loss to children. More importantly there will be tea/coffee and cake.
