Facing the Future was developed by Samaritans and Cruse Bereavement Support in 2011.  The service provides closed groups aiming to lessen the isolation felt by those bereaved by suicide, with emphasis placed on the participants supporting each other (ie, peer-to-peer).

These groups, each with up to ten participants, are presently run exclusively on Zoom and comprise six weekly 90-minute sessions (at the same time and day each week) facilitated by two trained volunteers.  
The groups are free of charge and are available to anyone over 18 who has lost someone to suicide, is ready to talk about their feelings and experiences, and to listen to and support others.  Since the groups take place online, participants can join from anywhere in the UK and Ireland.
Please refer to the Facing the Future website (www.facingthefuturegroups.org) for full details and for an online application form.
