‘I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know what to say.’
The Grief Language Project aims to reduce the awkwardness, both at home and in the workplace, associated with conversations around grief and bereavement. By becoming fluent in ‘grief language’, you’ll increase your confidence in communicating about grief, equip yourself with strategies to manage your own grief, or be a better support system to those who have lost someone.

‘I was motivated to start The Grief Language Project after the loss of my partner. While most people were incredible, others didn’t know what to say and avoided me, or having a conversation on grief, completely. Worse still were the intrusive questions at inappropriate times and places, such as my local supermarket. By coming together to learn about grief and how we can better support each other and ourselves, we normalise grief as a human process and reduce the sense of feeling uncomfortable when discussing loss.
