Dragonflies Parent Bereavement Support


Set up by parents, the group is a safe, friendly place to share thoughts and experiences following the death of a child.

The group operates free of charge and refreshments are provided.

Linking with other support services in the area, the group can put parents in touch with other helpful organisations including counselling.

The group has a good selection of appropriate books that parents can borrow.

The age of the child or adult child bears no relevance nor does the length of time that has passed since the loss.

Supporting each other through this painful journey of grief is a unique gift as no others can fully understand a parent’s loss.

The group operates the first Monday of every month except bank holidays 7.30pm - 9.30pm.

Although "Dragonflies" is sponsored by the Thomas Ball Children's Cancer Fund, all parents are welcome, not just those who have lost to cancer.
