What is ?
STAR (Share, Talk & Remember) is a Bereavement Peer Support Group, which provides free support for people grieving from a bereavement or difficult transition in their life. The aim of the support group is to create a safe space for people to receive support, listen to and share stories & experiences with others who have experienced loss in their life.
A STAR Bereavement Peer Support Group aims to:
provide peer-support sessions which will be facilitated by Peer Supporters; local people volunteering their time, most of whom have themselves been through a loss.
provide opportunity for service users (participants) to speak to others who have gone through something similar and/or listen to others’ stories & experiences of bereavement & grief. Each session addresses the topics and emotions that arise for participants on the day instead of having pre-planned topics to discuss.
share information about establishments which provide a range of support to help with sustaining & improving health & well-being
