"Male companionship with an opportunity to share has been invaluable" Miles Blackley
Has someone died? Death is very isolating and we live in a culture where it is a subject that is largely avoided. Men, in particular, can find it hard to talk about what they’re going through and often plough on bravely.
Bereavement Support for Men is for men of any age who have lost someone important at any time. We offer support over the phone and gatherings where men who have experienced bereavement can learn more about the grief journey and encourage one another around good food and enjoyable activities.
The vision is to create a national network of men’s groups and events, where bereaved men can comfortably receive the support they need and become better equipped for life.
National events offer a choice of different outdoor activity weekends including mountain biking, walking, canoe trips, camping and bush craft. Local groups (currently in Devon) may involve meeting up for coffee, going for a walk, taking on a project or paddling down a river for the more adventurous.
