Bereavement Support Drop-In Group

Dove Buddies Stoke-on-Trent

Dove Buddies is our social/friendship group for adults who have experienced bereavement and who may be struggling with social connections, loneliness and isolation.  The aim of Dove Buddies is to forge those connections and organise activities that will engage group members, encouraging socialisation and re-engagement.

Our Dove Buddies social/friendship group meets monthly in Stoke-on-Trent and we would like to extend a warm welcome to Natalie (pictured below), our NEW Dove Buddies Co-ordinator, who has recently joined our team and who will be facilitating the group from August 2019 onwards.

NEW Dove Buddies Co-ordinator

Why not come and join Natalie and meet the group over a brew and a biscuit over the following months – all we ask is a £1 donation per visit to the group.  We organise quizzes, taster exercise classes, talks from local groups, plus visits to local attractions and places of interest.  The group meets up from 10.30am to 12.00pm and listed below are the forthcoming dates and venues confirmed:
