Following the death of his wife from cancer in 2014, Roger Womack searched for other men to talk with who had had a similar experience, to help him make sense of what he’d been through.  He contacted a number of organisations but found that few men engaged with them, presumably because they thought they could brave it alone.  When he did eventually find other men who had faced the loss of someone close, the sharing of experience was a significant factor in being able to move forward.

He now runs's Bereavement Support for Men project offering phone support and national and local gatherings for men who have experienced loss. 

Please visit the Bereavement Support for Men page for more information about the project.
