    Hi There,

    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?

    Thanks

    Charlie

    Hi,

    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/

    Hope this helps

    Mark

    Hi thanks for your response.

    Widowed and Young is not one I have heard of thank you, I’ll check that out. SAMM I am a member of but in terms of local support there doesn’t seem to be any.

    Thanks for your help 🙂
