Sunbeam Support Group provides a welcoming space for anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby or young child. Parents can meet other families who are grieving for their children, talk openly about their loss, discuss coping mechanisms and eventually – learn to live again. The group offers not only a wealth of experience and advice for bereaved parents, but a substantial amount of grief-related resources too, including a lending library which allows parents to borrow books related to the topic of baby loss.
Where: Strong Close Children’s Center, Airedale Road, Keighley, BD21 4LW
(Please note that meetings are held in a room that adjoins the Children’s Center. The room is clearly signposted and you will not need to enter the Children’s Center to access the room where Sunbeam Support Group is held)
When: The last Thursday of every month, meetings run from 18.30pm – 20.30pm.
Who: Each group meeting is hosted by one member of staff from Strong Close Children’s Center and two Midwives from Airedale General Hospital. Parents who have lost a baby or young child are welcome, as are Grandparents and other adult relatives. We politely request that you please do not bring children to this group.
(Please note that none of the group leaders are trained counselors, but are there to help support and facilitate the running of the group).
