Bereavement Group

Situated in the beautiful surroundings of Hengistbury Head, our nature-focused bereavement group provide therapeutic benefits of nature, alongside social support.

Who is the nature-focused bereavement group for?

This group is open to anyone who has lost someone in their lives and would like to take some time out in nature with others.

When and where does the group meet?

We meet up every Tuesday between 10am-12pm, usually at Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre.

What does the group do?

We get stuck into a nature-focused activity such as something arty (we've been building bird boxes and bug hotels, and reindeer) or maybe species identification:



Our sessions are free, and we provide a hot drink.

Do I have to commit to every week?

Not at all. We understand that people have busy lives, or may just not feel like coming sometimes.

How do I sign up or find out more?

If you are interested in coming along, please send us an email.

The Nature of Loss

Our podcast looks into personal stories of grief and how nature was an important part of that process.

Through these conversations, we hear about the many benefits that nature can provide, activities to get involved in, and how to use the outdoors to support yourself or loved ones during a personal loss.
