2017 Parent Support Meetings

“It took me a long time to attend a meeting, but when I did it felt like coming home or putting a comfy pair of slippers on, feeling support and love in the room with people who you didn't know but you felt as if you had known them all”

“Brightest Star meetings with other bereaved parents is the only thing that sometimes makes sense and it's the only place in which one’s silence is completely accepted, any emotion is. There was never a tunnel only love”.

These are some quot...es from parents who have attended the Brightest Star support meetings. The support meetings are open to parents that have lost a son or daughter, of any age, from any cause of death. The meetings are very informal and there to provide a space for people to talk about their child, their grief, their feelings, their hopes and fears. Some people attend the meetings and don’t wish to talk, they get comfort from just listening to others. Below are the dates for our Glasgow and Edinburgh meetings for 2017, people are welcome to attend either or both.

Everyone is different, some people find the support groups really helpful, others don’t but I always say that you will never know until you try. If you would like more information on the support groups, then please free to get in touch.
