every loss is unique, every bereavement is different

Bereavement can affect many areas of life – the ability to work at home or school, physical and emotional well-being, as well as myriad changes to everyday life.

space2grieve offers experienced, professional, caring support that can help with exploring and reflecting on those losses and changes and help find a path forward.

We provide support in a series of free, confidential one-to-one support sessions with one of our highly-trained volunteers.

We can offer Bereavement Support for anyone that lives in Richmond Upon Thames Borough. That includes:

Barnes • Castlenau • East Sheen • East Twickenham • Fulwell • Ham • Hampton • Hampton Hill • Hampton Wick • Kew • Mortlake • North Sheen • Petersham • Richmond • St Margarets • Strawberry Hill • Teddington • Twickenham • Whitton

“a big thank you to the space2grieve team for providing a safe space to explore and make peace with the multitude of complex and confusing feelings that can follow a bereavement. i will always be grateful for the kindness, support and empathy I was shown during a sad and difficult time”

support for children and young people

space2grieve can support children and young people aged 3-18.

Within space2grieve we have a team of Bereavement Support Specialists who are specially trained to support children and young people. All our volunteers hold an enhanced DBS check.

We can offer support in school, as well as at home, in our friendly and welcoming space at ETNA, or over Zoom or on the phone.

We can work individually with siblings, as well as children at the same time as any adults in their families who would also like support.

Get in touch with us to talk about how we might be able to help.

parenting through grief

space2grieve’s Children and Young People’s Bereavement Support Service includes a provision for parents of bereaved children, called ‘Parenting through Grief’.

After an initial telephone call to register for the service, parents are offered a 90-minute session at the ETNA Centre with an experienced Specialist Bereavement Supporter. This is an opportunity to talk about how their child/young person is grieving and to be given information and advice.

Parents can also access our reference library of books for bereaved children to see if any might be helpful to their circumstances.

After this session, space2grieve may go on to offer the child or young person FREE support within school, at home, on the phone or Zoom, or in our friendly space at the ETNA Community Centre in East Twickenham.

compassionate cuppa is a free grief café providing support and connection

We are open to those who are bereaved, no matter when and no matter how. space2grieve volunteers will offer a warm welcome, but more importantly a safe place to share experiences with other bereaved people.
