Suicide Bereavement Support Groups - BYIB - Preston and Chorley


Project starts: 28 March 2024

Location: The Chai centre, Hurtley Street, Burnley, BB10 1BY.

Beside You In Bereavement (BYIB) brings the community together to share the grief of suicide with others who know how this bereavement can feel.

The groups are peer support, facilitated by those bereaved by suicide. The groups are very informal and people can speak freely knowing they can share their thoughts and feelings with others who understand. We have had sessions for relaxation, breathwork, sound healing and herbal remedies in addition to clay work and creativity

The groups in Preston and Chorley were originally funded by Ver De Gris arts company who created a film based on the experience of Gillian Brooks and family. This film showed the impact of suicide on the family and led to public screenings and subsequent establishment of Suicide Bereavement groups in Preston and Chorley.


When & Where

Sessions begin on Tuesday 28th March

They meet every Thursday between 12pm - 2pm, alternating between Chorley and Preston. They are also hoping to start new groups in other parts of Lancashire soon.
