Grief Groups, Programs and Events Provided and/or Sponsored

Bereavement Support groups offer a unique opportunity for individuals and/or couples to share experiences of a similar nature. They receive compassion, friendship, understanding and hope in a non-threatening atmosphere.

Support groups may be provided by volunteers or facilitated by trained or professional leaders.

The structure may be a program of a defined time period, a weekly or monthly gathering. It can be as simple as an online support or as extensive as including a meeting, newsletter, website, library, candlelight memorials and walks. 

The Edwards Family Centre has established a number of bereavement support groups, programs and events as well as partnering with, and providing financial support and facilities to many organizations and individual grief support groups and activities.

The Edwards Family Centre fields calls each day and helps direct people towards appropriate support.
