About the Event

Our special online support day for those widowed young*, is one in which you will be able to relax in the company of other adults who understand first-hand the pain of untimely loss. Just being able to share with or simply listen to others in a safe, supportive environment is an ideal opportunity to discover some fresh perspectives and to renew your strength, and hope for the future. It’s important to take some time for yourself.

The day starts at 10.00am and will end no later than 3.15pm.

There will be three short online sessions during the day with ample rest breaks in between each one. The three sessions cover:

  • The feelings and emotions associated with loss
  • The power of storytelling – why we share stories and the opportunity to listen to others and to share if you wish to
  • Hope for the future – what hope is and sources of hope

There will be opportunities to share informally in small groups, and a counsellor will be available during the day if you wish to have a short one-to-one private chat.

As a UK-based charity, unfortunately, on this occasion, we are unable to take bookings for this event from anyone who is residing outside the UK.

Those aged 50 and younger, or over 50 if you still have dependent children.

Further Information

We never want money to be the reason you are unable to access our resources and support, and due to the generosity of our Partners, we are able to offer a limited number of complimentary tickets for each event. So, if selecting the complimentary ticket rate would make it possible for you to attend, please choose that option.

The support day will be conducted using Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, you will need to set up a free account and download the software onto your device, and as this can take a few minutes, you should ideally do this before the meeting.

The day will contain a few PowerPoint slides, and for the best experience it is therefore advisable to access the training via a PC if at all possible, but tablets and smartphones should work too.

Further information and a worksheet, used during the support day, will be emailed to you prior to the event.

Once you have booked on to the online support day, we will contact you at a convenient time prior to the day, to go through any questions that you may have about the day, the content or Zoom.
