    Agreement attending Virtual Help Point Zoom sessions

    • Confidentiality: We will not share your information with anyone outside the organisation. Whilst we adhere to data protection regulations we cannot guarantee 100% confidentiality due to using the online platform, Zoom. We ask that you share outside the group only what you have learned about yourself. There is to be no recording of sessions.
    • Safety: Keeping yourself safe is paramount. Find a room/space where you are on your own, feel safe and cannot be overheard by anyone else.
    • Respect: It is important to respect your own grief as well as others. There is no one or simple path to follow. It is important to respect everyone’s right to grieve in their own way. We can compare but cannot judge.
    • Each person’s grief is unique. While you may share some commonalities in your experiences, no two of you are exactly alike. Consequently, respect and accept both what you have in common with others and what is unique to each of you.
    • Advice: We are here to share personal feelings and current concerns but are not here to fix problems. You are welcome to ask questions, make suggestions.
    • Feel free to talk about your grief. If, however, someone in the group decides to listen without sharing, please respect his or her preference. Avoid interrupting or speaking over someone else.
    • Feelings: Feelings are neither right nor wrong; they just are.

Bereavement Help Point: Catford

The drop in Bereavement Help Points are a weekly 2 hour service. These sessions enable members of the community to have a regular point where the subject of death and bereavement is addressed openly and empathically in an informal setting.

Visitors support each other and often visit regularly in order to meet up with others who share their feelings and understand what they are going through particularly in early grief when formal services are not available generally.

For further details call 0208 378 5358

Carers Time to Talk: Online

Fulfilling a caring role can be both rewarding and challenging, and not always in equal measure. This is a space to speak openly about your experiences of caring for someone with a life-limiting illness with others who can empathise as a result of their own experiences of caring.

Join this supportive Carers chat via Zoom.

“It took some effort for me to join the Zoom ‘Carers Time to Talk’ because I usually avoid communications by video. However, it has been a delight to meet up with fellow carers and share tips, problems, general chat. It’s lovely building up a rapport with other people in the same boat as you and, as the weeks go by, feeling as if you’ve made new friends. It’s a group you can dip in and out of whenever you like, there are no rules – it’s becoming a big happy family to share some respite with each Thursday afternoon!”

Healthy Walks

All are welcome to join this friendly, welcoming group which meets every Thursday, for a healthy walk in Crystal Palace Park.

The walks set off at 1.30pm from the St Christopher’s CARE front entrance. We walk for just under an hour, through the beautiful park, enjoying the changing of seasons. Walking routes are tailored to the energies and abilities of all participants.

Everyone is welcome to take part – volunteers, staff, friends, service users, relatives, local residents, and the walks are free

Please wear comfortable footwear, and clothing appropriate for the weather.

Toilets are available at the start and finish of the walk, and after the walk we usually stay on for a cuppa in the Anniversary Centre.

You can take part whether or not you have walked with us before, and there is no need to book. You will need to register with Lewisham Healthy Walks, which you can do online or by completing a form when you arrive for your first walk. Register online here.

For more information, please email HealthyWalks@stchristophers.org.uk or call 07834802355. Or just turn up on a Thursday lunchtime!
