About the Losing a friend category

This is a place where anyone who has lost a friend can share experiences and support each other.

When your friend dies, the sadness you feel can be overwhelming, yet those around you may not understand what you’re going through. This can leave you feeling isolated and alone, but the community is here for you. We have created this category so that anyone who has experienced the death of a friend can talk to others who understand.

You might find these Sue Ryder resources helpful to you as you cope with the death of your friend.

We have also just launched our Grief Kind Spaces.

Our Grief Kind Spaces are weekly, in-person drop-in sessions held in the local community and run by trained volunteers. The sessions provide a safe, informal and supportive place for people to come together and share their experiences of grief, helping attendees to feel heard and less alone.

If you’re not in an area with a Grief Kind space, or are looking for a different kind of support, you may wish to visit the AtALoss website. It is a directory of bereavement support and will show you what is available in your area. If you click this link then select your region, you may be able to find something near you.

Take good care,
