Through Unity continues to work as an extended family of families, giving unique mutual support and offering real understanding
Some of our key events are regular Family Days. Our most recent gathering was on 16th June 2012 at Leytonstone Methodist Chapel rooms. Families arrive from 10.30am for coffee and were soon sharing experiences, exchanging thoughts and views, and then lunch together in the Chapel Hall.
Friends and partners of Through Unity provided relaxation therapies in 'The Treatment Room'.
The day was so successful that many families were still there at 5pm dodging the vacuum cleaner as the Chapel staff prepared for their evening function. It was a great day and we were delighted with the very positive feedback we receive.
At the same time another of our key partners the Child Bereavement Charity was running a ‘U-Film workshop’ for 11 – 18 year old family members, helping them to develop a film about their perspective following the loss of their brother, sister or close friend. The film will be used to support other young people in similar tragic situations. (watch out for a link on the website soon).
