Our Support Meetings


Support meetings are normally held on the first Tuesday of every month. 


Our next support meeting is on-

Tuesday 5th February, 2019
@ 8pm-9:45pm


At: Great Ashby Community Centre

in Circles Cafe (closed to the public)
Whitehorse Lane
Stevenage, SG1 6NH


The Centre is accessed via the car park opposite the school. Please come to the cafe - you will need to enter via the door on the LEFT side of the centre, then turn right into the cafe. (Sometimes we have to move to the Chaplaincy - this is at the end of the corridor, past the toilets).


To keep informed of support meeting details,
please join our Facebook group:




You are welcome to let us know if you would like to come along in advance or just turn up on the night. Please let us know if you would like a lift or someone to attend with you - email northhertssands@gmail.com


Many people find that just being in the company of others who have shared a similar devastating experience can be comforting. Our monthly support meetings are very relaxed and welcoming. Everyone who attends has suffered a loss and we are very sensitive to this. Everything that is said in our meetings is private and confidential.


The support meetings are facilitated by a trained Sands befriender. If you have not attended a meeting before, but would like to come along, you would be very welcome. All you have to do is turn up. You do not need to share any details if you do not wish to.  


If you require support in the daytime, please fill in the contact form with your details and a befriender will get back to you.


Bedford Sands also offer support meetings. For more information on Bedford Sands please see their website.
