Support groups

Find out what we offer and how to join a support group.

Our support groups are currently closed while the Centre moves to new premises.

We will let you know when our support groups start again and we look forward to providing our services to you again soon.

Our support groups are free to access.

Groups are a mixture of both online and face to face within York.

Bereavement Support Group

A weekly online support group for people who are bereaved or experiencing grief.

In the group you will have the opportunity to talk about your feelings and to others who have gone through a similar experience and can relate to your experiences. It's a space for everyone to listen and mutually support each other. It won't take away the pain, but it can help to share it with people who want to listen.

If you would like to come to one of our drop-in sessions or become a weekly member, please email

Cuppa and Conversation Group

A free 10-week emotional support group for individuals that are lonely, wanting to discover more about themselves, learn tools to support their wellbeing, and make new friendships.

Each week there will be different discussion topics and activities to engage with from sharing experiences and things that have impacted us, journaling for self-discovery and learning about self-care and mindfulness, just to name a few. Our main aim is for everyone to make meaningful connections, share experiences and knowledge, learn some helpful tools to take away, and enjoy a cuppa and some interesting conversations!
