Norwich bereavement support group launched

Dove250Following on from the memorial service held last November in Norwich Cathedral, a bereavement support group has been set up by parents who have lost loved ones and is being supported by Norfolk Christian charity The Matthew Project.
Carole Taylor, who helped organise the Memorial service and the group, said: “After the service last year, it was felt there was a need for a group to connect people that have lost someone through drugs or alcohol.  The group will offer a mutually supportive environment where you can grieve for the lost of a loved one through drugs and alcohol.”
MatthewProjectCropThe bereavement support group will: provide an avenue for people to meet others that have gone through similar experiences and provide information regarding where to access advice and support. Anyone who has lost someone or knows someone who has dies through drugs and alcohol is very welcome
This new group Bereaved Anonymous will take place on the first Monday of every month, starting on March 3 from 6pm-7.30pm, at The Matthew Project offices, 24 Pottergate, Norwich.
Tea and coffee will be available. Please ring before the meeting to check it is taking place on 01603 626123.


Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
