LOROS Bereavement Support Group relaunched

Feb 15, 2022 | News, What we fund

Birstall BAGs is delighted to be supporting the bereavement support group, Reaching Out, part of the LOROS Bereavement Support Service. The group is one of the LOROS community hubs which are groups based at different locations across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, offering support and information to communities.

The Reaching Out group is for anyone who has been bereaved – it doesn’t matter how long it’s been or what the cause was. The sessions are open to anyone aged 18 or over and offer information, support and the chance to share thoughts and feelings with others who may have similar experiences.

The Birstall group will take place:
– Every Friday at 1.30pm until 3pm starting from 4th march 2022
– At the Birstall Methodist Church, Wanlip Lane, Birstall LE4 4JS

There’s no need to book or have a referral – just drop in.

Emma Shaw, a trustee of the Birstall BAGs commented: “We’re very pleased to be able to fund LOROS to provide the Reaching Out bereavement group. It’s fantastic news that the group is being relaunched in March as we’re sure that people have missed that face-to-face support during the pandemic.”

Suzann Chantrill at LOROS added: “Bereavement support is in such short supply right now and waiting lists are into years and not months since the pandemic. We’re grateful to Birstall BAGs for supporting the group and we invite people to drop in for a chat in a friendly and supportive environment.”
