Grief Kind Spaces are weekly, in-person drop-in sessions held in the local community and run by trained volunteers. The sessions provide a safe, informal and supportive place for people aged 18 and over to come together and share their experiences of grief, helping attendees to feel heard and less alone. They are run by volunteers from Sue Ryder.
The sessions are welcoming and inclusive, whether you want to attend regularly to connect with others in similar situations or just drop in for a quick chat. The spaces are volunteer-led, with volunteers receiving training and guidance to help attendees connect with each other and share their experiences of grief through peer-to-peer support. Grief Kind Spaces is not a counselling service and attendees seeking more formal support will be encouraged to use Sue Ryder’s existing Online Bereavement Counselling Service or other support services.
Grief Kind Spaces in Leeds run in Headingley and the City Centre.
