Grief Services

Grief is a natural, powerful and human response to the loss of someone close to us. Most people, but not all, experience some kind of shock and disbelief, anger and sadness.

Grief is often like great waves of emotions that can fluctuate wildly and without warning, and can be overwhelming and frightening.

The level and intensity of grief also fluctuates, and may make the whole process feel very chaotic and out of our control.

Our Grief Support Services offer support, free of charge, to individuals and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one through blood cancer, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

These resources are also available to the wider community.

Grief support seminars

We regularly hold seminars, brunches and events for grief support services where you’ll receive meaningful support in an informal setting. The sessions are designed for individuals and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one through leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or a related blood disorder.

See our calendar for an upcoming get together near you.

Grief support brunches

Held regularly throughout the year, the brunches cover a range of topics and speakers in a safe and comfortable environment.

See our calendar for details of the next Grief Support brunch.

Bereaved parents’ weekend

An annual two-day workshop designed specifically for parents who have lost a child (whether a baby, toddler, teenager or adult child). The program aims to give them the opportunity to meet other parents in similar situations and the chance to share in a safe and comfortable environment.

I ended up sharing my emotions with friends not strangers.  It did not change the pain I have in my heart, but helped my emotions on how to sort myself out and to deal with others – bereaved father
