    Membership and events are free

    As a self funded group within the National Charity we politely request an annual donation to help cover the costs and venue charges for holding support groups.



Support groups

You can visit any of our support groups to meet other bereaved parents. These groups are hosted by Befrienders across Surrey. Parents may attend at any point after their bereavement to share experiences and gain mutual support.

Some groups are for parents only and others are child friendly suitable for taking siblings along to. Mums who are pregnant again may attend any of the sessions, or our ad-hoc pregnant again groups, but we respectfully ask you to advise the host if you are attending a group so that we can inform others accordingly. Contact the helpline for information and see below for dates of the next meeting in each location.
