Let's talk about loss

This event (being held during National Grief Awareness Week) will give you the chance to hear from Beth French, founder of the charity ‘Let’s Talk About Loss’, about her experience of grief and why she went on to set up a national organisation to help others who have experienced a bereavement.

The event is being held in a ‘conversation style’ format, with an opportunity towards the second half for the audience to pose questions directly to Beth.

When: Tuesday 3 December 2019, 12 to 1pm

Where: Conference rooms 4 and 5, Temple Quay House, Bristol, BS1 6HA

This event is open to all Civil and Public Servants. You can sign up here via Eventbrite

      Hi Keith thank for your comment. There are no plans at present I'm afraid, but if other areas are able to run something similar it will be advertised on the blog.

        Thanks Heidi appreciate the response, I hope one day it does venture up to the North East and hope I can attend...

    I fully support this event. However I would say that it doesn't matter how old the person faced with the loss is they can still be traumatised by grief (I have a friend who is currently having difficulty dealing with the loss of her mother despite being over 50).
    Rather than advertise it as aimed for young people I would encourage you to think about promoting it for all people.

      Hi Sam thank you for your comment. Whilst Beth's charity is aimed at 18 to 35 year olds we deliberately haven't specified an age for those attending. Any Civil Servants are welcome to attend.
