Carer Support Wiltshire and Dorothy House Hospice Care are pleased to announce a new partnership, which will offer support to unpaid carers who have experienced bereavement.

The two charities are running regular Bereavement Help Point groups at The Angel in Chippenham, Three Brewers in Corsham and The Bear Hotel in Devizes, which are open for anyone in the community who has been touched by grief to drop in and receive support.

When someone close to us dies we can be left feeling lost and alone, in a strange world. If we have been caring for that person, the loss can feel particularly disorientating as our lives and daily routines will have been centred around caring for them.

The Bereavement Help Points are informal and supportive spaces that are facilitated by trained Dorothy House and Carer Support Wiltshire volunteers. They are places where people can be with others who are bereaved and talk about their feelings and fears.

All sessions are free and there’s no need to book, you can simply come along. Thanks to Chippenham Borough Lands who funded the running of the Chippenham group.
