Bereavement Help Points

Many of us find talking about grief difficult but at St Giles we know from experience that talking about bereavement and loss can be incredibly positive.

That is why we operate a series of bereavement help points across the region.  Some of our help points are run in partnership with South Staffordshire Cruse Bereavement Care.

If you are experiencing or have experienced bereavement (regardless of how long ago or the type of bereavement), you will be made very welcome at one of our free weekly drop-in Bereavement Help Points.
