Community support hub

Our Community Support Hub offers free-to-access groups and initiatives that support people to talk about their feelings, share experiences and gain support from our community.

The Hub offers different types of support. You can be supported 1-1 by a community volunteer, or join a group where you can talk more about your experiences and help others with theirs.

Our activities focus on people with a similar experience coming together to listen to each other in a supportive, friendly and gentle environment.

We also seek people to help us with facilitating the hub’s activities by volunteering to make them happen.

Bereavement Buddies

If you have been caring for someone who was a patient at St Christopher’s and would like support with grief and loss, we can connect you in the first few months of your bereavement with a Bereavement Buddy.

A Bereavement Buddy is someone who knows about loss, grief and bereavement from their own experiences and is ready to listen, support and connect you to helpful offers and opportunities in early bereavement.
