Grief holds no boundaries. 

There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief can effect anyone one no matter who they are and we are committed to supporting people in an inclusive and diverse way. 

We also recognise that people’s grief reactions can also be influenced by a person’s identity such as age, gender, religious or cultural beliefs and more, and could add to feelings of isolation within a person’s grief journey. Therefore we understand the importance of bringing people together with similar influences to help with their loss. Our aim at SAMM is to support this approach by bringing people together with similar identities. For more information please email the office at
