JBCS has trained counsellors to work with bereavement support groups.
Butterflies – for mothers or fathers who have themselves lost a parent.
Aftershock – a support group for young adults (18 – 30) who have lost a parent.
Stepping Stones – a support group for Jewish people (40 – 60) who have lost a partner.
A group can be very helpful following a bereavement, in particular being with others who share similar experiences.
JBCS would like to develop more groups. We would like to respond to the need in the community and would welcome enquiries.
