Get Together - Bereaved Families Discovering, is a community of families who have experienced the death of a parent or child. It offers bereaved families an opportunity to connect with each other and with other families through activity days and residentials.
This space has been designed as an online community for bereaved families and those who want to walk alongside them on their grief journey. We have learned so much from the 60+ families who have so far participated in Get Together, and we’ve created this space to help them share their learning with you.
With support from the Big Lottery Fund, Get Together was established in 2014 as a partnership project between Cruse Bereavement Care and Corrymeela Community in Northern Ireland.
Andrea, a mother of five whose husband died a couple years ago comments:
“Get Together is a place where you can relax and sit back and talk to others, knowing that everyone here holds the same pain. This weekend is a chance for you and your family to be one unit and smile together as a family. Take a walk on this weekend with an open heart.”
In the words of a professional participating in a Get Together Road Show:
“It was so powerful and thought-provoking to hear directly from a family about their experience. It helped me understand better the theories which underpin grief work.”
