5 tips for self-care before and after the Candlelight Remembrance event


Bereavement Café

The Demelza Bereavement Café aims to connect Demelza families, across Sussex, South East London and Kent, to support each other through grief and loss. We recognise that often the best support can be found in spending time with others who have had a similar experience.  By holding weekly virtual cafes and regular café events, Demelza’s bereaved families will be able to talk with others, with a shared connection, although still recognising that grief is unique and personal. When we are able to meet in person we will do so, supplementing the virtual cafes with face-to-face events in the community.

For zoom details for the bereavement cafes or to access support please email or call Family Support Line on 01795 845280 (10:00 - 16:00 Mon-Fri only).


Bereaved Families Facebook Group

A new Facebook page for bereaved families has been set up as a place to share information, experiences and to build a supportive community for families with a similar experience. If you would like to request to join the group please search ‘Demelza Bereaved Families Group’ in the Facebook search tool or click here and the click 'Request to Join group'.  Your request will be reviewed/approved by a group administrator.
