Meeting People

There are two ways that you can meet others in our community:

Support Groups

Our support groups give you the chance to meet people in your locality and talk broadly about family estrangement, its impact and any struggles you might be having.

It can be helpful to meet others in the same position, and we give out questions to break the ice and find shared experiences. These are talking groups and are run by a facilitator, who can keep the space fair and safe. We run the programme over over six sessions, which take place fortnightly at the weekend.

We are running funded support groups in Bristol and Manchester from March 2018. To sign up, you need to attend an introductory session, where you can meet others in a similar position, and find out more about our groups.

Our next introductory sessions will take place in the August, and are open for registration now.


Therapeutic Workshops

Our one day therapeutic workshops explore the feelings associated with family estrangement as well as giving you the practical tools to help you to adjust to your situation.

-Adjusting to your estrangement

-The impact on identity

-Managing worry and rumination


-Understanding shame

Registration is now open for our ‘Sense of Home’ workshop in London at the end of July.
