The BEAD project is a partnership between Cruse Bereavement Care and Adfam, providing practical and emotional support and information specifically for anyone bereaved through a loved one’s drug or alcohol use.
Cruse is the UK’s leading bereavement charity and Adfam is the national charity working to improve support for families affected by drug or alcohol use.
They will be launching a new round of their peer support group in the new year.
The group will be held in central London and will consist of eight weekly sessions, the first of which is on Tuesday 21 February 2017.
They have two highly-experienced BEAD peer support volunteers facilitating the group to provide emotional and practical support in a closed group setting to bereaved adults.
They know that this type of bereavement support can be very hard to come by and there only a few groups of this kind across the country.
Please see their FAQs for a full list of the dates and further information on the bereavement peer support groups.
Please note there is also 1:1 support available through BEAD, subject to a waiting list. See the BEAD flyer (pdf) for more information.
Please get in contact them on email@example.com if you would like to attend the group or have any questions.
