Annual November Public Information Evening on Bereavement 2017
Our annual November public information evening on bereavement was held on 2nd November. This annual event aims to provide information about grief and the range of supports available to bereaved people. The evening opened with an introduction followed by a number of talks and video presentations. Guest speaker Laura Kennedy (Columnist with The Irish Times, author of the personal reflection column ‘Leavetaking’) spoke on the theme ‘Living with Loss’. At the event a number of voluntary bereavement support services and professional therapeutic services were represented (listed below). The audience had an opportunity to visit these stands and be informed of what services they provide. Admission is free to this annual November event which is open to all members of the public, in particular to those that have been bereaved.
