BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT

Grieving is a natural response to loss but bereavement can be a confusing and lonely experience.

Our bereavement support program is designed to offer a place for people to turn to when they are grieving.

Our service provides ongoing support in a safe and caring space through our Bereavement Support Coordinator and trained bereavement support volunteers.

How we can help

Our Bereavement Support Coordinator overseas all bereavement support opportunities and will meet with you to discuss your situation and how we can assist.

  • We offer a weekly Drop- In Grief Support Session every Wednesday 12-2 pm – no appointment is necessary.
  • We offer a 1:1 volunteer support service who will regularly meet you to offer support.
  • We provide companionship and support via our Community Connect program. Available from 8.30am to 8.30pm, seven-days a week by calling 0492 862 225. This service is open to anyone dealing with end of life issues, caring for someone at end of life or experiencing bereavement and isolation.
  • We have a Men only support group.
  • We conduct an annual Service of Remembrance in November.

At the Geographe Bay Centre, we provide a neutral and confidential place for support sessions, where our volunteers listen with deep understanding and will respond in a supportive and non – judgmental way. Our volunteers are able to listen to strong emotions, validate that grief is a normal response to loss and support you in understanding the grief process.

I wasn’t prepared for the utter emotional, physical, and mental roller coaster that came with my grief – the anger, the guilt, the fear, confusion, physical exhaustion and devastation. This centre has been my ‘safe place’. It has been invaluable to me to express myself to others who showed no judgement and who understood.”
