Drop-ins for bereavement charity

Children’s bereavement charity Winston’s Wish is holding a series of drop in dates.

l Who is the drop-in for?

The drop-in is open to anyone who would like to find out more about us and the services we provide or would like to meet with other people in relation to a bereavement. We also welcome individuals/families from outside of these locations/areas who wish to make the journey to meet with us.

The Winston’s Wish Drop-in for West Sussex will run on the last Thursday of every month, in West Sussex. We also welcome individuals/families from outside of West Sussex who wish to make the journey to meet with us. The Drop-in is held in the Westgate Leisure Centre, Ravenna Way, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1RJ from 2.30 – 5.30pm.

Thursday 29th January 2015

l I am a parent/carer, is it for me?

Yes, you’re very welcome to drop-in to meet with us to discuss a family bereavement or a bereaved child you are supporting. The drop-in may also provide an informal space to meet other parents or carers in a similar situation.

l I am a professional, is it for me?

Yes, you’re welcome to drop-in to discuss families or children you’re working with where bereavement is a key issue. You can find out what we can offer, and we can offer guidance and support around the work you’re doing related to bereavement.

l Can children come along?

Absolutely, we welcome parents and carers to bring young children. There will be toys available for younger ones. We also welcome teenagers to drop-in and have a chat with us about their bereavement.

l Is it confidential?

All the conversations we have with families or individuals remain confidential. The drop-in will provide an open, relaxed space to meet with us and we will not be passing on to other agencies the details of people who come to the drop-in (though we can do this if you would like us to).
