The Compassionate Friends was founded in 1969 and is an organisation of bereaved parents and their families helping others through their grief.

It is open to all parents whose son or daughter has died at any age and from any cause. The death of their child brings many difficulties within a family; The Compassionate Friends recognises that there is no easy path through the pain and does not offer simple solutions. What it does offer is continuing understanding, friendship and encouragement. It also offers support to grandparents and siblings.

Leeds Bereavement Support Group

The Compassionate Friends  meet monthly, every fourth Tuesday at Garforth Methodist Church from 10am until midday. Join them, for a friendly safe place where they share with others who have also suffered in this way. The group is open to anyone who has lost a child of any for ANY reason no matter how long ago. Refreshments served.
