‘Grief is in two parts. The first is experiencing a loss. The second is the remaking of life.’(Anne Roiphe)
embark2 aims to provide support for anyone who has experienced the loss of a partner and provides opportunities so that they can start the process of remaking their life.
embark2 is there to help you whether you have been recently bereaved or bereaved some time ago, regardless of age, gender, race, religion or orientation.
We all experience loss differently and embark2 is a place for you to find peer to peer support and meet others who understand what it means to have lost their partner and who are faced with the challenge of trying to rebuild their lives.
It is often the case that in the days and weeks after our loss, friends and family rally around and we are often kept busy. Eventually, for many of us, that support can fall away and we find that we have more and more time to fill and have empty days when the support and friendship of others is needed.
embark2 provides opportunities to meet up by providing weekends away and holidays, where we can share our experiences of grief in a safe environment, receive and provide support to fellow members, have a place to make sense of our new life and deal with the feelings of guilt which are so often present when we embark on the process of living again.
All holidays organised by embark2 are offered on a not-for-profit basis.
