I’m a single parent with a teenage son, as a family we have encountered a lot of trauma over the years..(sons dad was murdered 10 years ago) I have not felt strong enough in the past but now think its time I try and start a group for other parents who might have been through similar. I have not been able to find any kind of support for this. Are there any other parents out there who are similar or in need of a support group like this?
Your loss must of been terrible and I can only only say I’m sorry to hear your sons dad died in this way.
I’ve met a few folk here who have suffered from the death of a loved one but from memory they have been through illness but I’m sure that you’re not alone and someone here can relate.
There is a support group called SAMM- Support After Murder & Manslaughter. Perhaps they may also be able to help?
Another resource to try although less specific is:
Widowed and Young provide peer to peer support service for men and women under 50 who have lost a partner. It is run by a network of volunteers and offers a range of services. https://www.widowedandyoung.org.uk/
