Circle adult bereavement support is a community service for any bereaved adult resident in the mid-Essex area. It is a service based within Farleigh Hospice.
The service offers bereavement support, mostly undertaken by a team of trained and experienced volunteers. After an initial assessment, support can be by telephone or face-to-face on a regular basis and is arranged at a mutually convenient time.
Farleigh Hospice also holds two monthly support groups. The support groups are friendly, supportive spaces where you have an opportunity to meet with others in a similar situation. These are held at the hospice and take place at the following times:
Second Monday of the month – 10:30 to 12:00 noon and
Third Wednesday of the month – 19:00 to 20:30 hours.
For some, counselling is needed and this is undertaken either by Farleigh Hospice’s team of Student Counsellors (who have completed the in-house Bereavement training), qualified Volunteer Counsellors or by the two professional counsellors who work for the service. Farleigh Hospice will assess your needs and allocate you to the appropriate counsellor.
Farleigh Hospice welcome referrals from individuals and healthcare professionals from 6 weeks after bereavement.
