Bereavement Café at Shooting Star House

  • 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
  • Shooting Star House

Our doors are open on Thursday mornings, welcoming families to drop-in to our Bereavement Café at Shooting Star House our Bereavement Centre. There is coffee, cake, and fruit, and our Family Support Workers are there to chat, listen, or just be with you if you don’t feel able to speak. Everyone welcome, including siblings, grandparents, or a different friend/family member. We invite you to come as you are, no matter how you might be feeling. Parking is on-site. Just pull up to the gates to be let in. Stay as long or as little as you wish.

Schools are welcome to bring groups of pupils who knew a child who has died to attend as a one-off, or for successive weeks. Teachers usually identify a small group of pupils who were close to the child who has died. The cafe provides a safe space where they can make crafts and keepsakes, and talk to others about how grief can make you feel.  If you would like to bring a group of pupils from your school to our centre, please contact us before attending.

If you’d like to ask any questions, please email

Shooting Star realise the importance of a support network and wants to do anything we can to help build that. We will gather in the dining room, but please note that hospice day-to-day practice will continue at Shooting Star House. Parking is on site on a first come first serve basis, please just pull up to the gates to be let in.

No need to RSVP.
