Many of us are aware of the difficulty people face in coping with bereavement and the loneliness they can feel. Being able to talk to others in a similar situation can help, hence this is why we set up a Bereavement Help Point for the people of Rutland.
Until recently, due to Covid-19, this service has taken place online. We are happy to announce that we are now supporting people on a face to face basis from March 2022 onwards.
The Bereavement Help Point is a drop-in service that aims to provide bereaved people with a place where they can access information and support, where they can talk to others and share their emotions with others in a safe environment with other local people. It does not matter when your bereavement was it could have been very recently or several years ago the Help Point is for all.
The Help Point has been set up by local residents, Ketton Parish Council, LOROS, Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall and Dove Cottage, with support from Dying Matters in Rutland, the Whitebread Trust and Community Foundation.
It is run by volunteers who have undergone training and are supported by our local Hospices.
If you are bereaved and would like to come along the Bereavement Help points run every 2 and 4 Thursday of the month 3-5pm at The Falcon Hotel, 7 High St East, Uppingham LE15 9PY.
OR every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month 2pm-4pm at Ketton Sports & Community Centre, Pit lane, Ketton, Stamford, PE9 3SZ.
(Excluding bank holidays).
