Winston's Wish Drop-in

Who is the Drop-in for?

The Drop-in is a service that Winston’s Wish started in January 2013.  It is open to anyone who would like to find out more about us and the services we provide or would like to meet with other people in relation to a bereavement. We also welcome individuals/families from outside of these locations/areas who wish to make the journey to meet with us.

Please click your region’s tab below to see what drop-ins are available. For more information, please call our Helpline on 08088 020 021 or visit our Facebook or Twitter pages for updates.

We offer Drop-in sessions for families (usually parents/ carers) to attend – as a face to face version of our Helpline and ASK email service – where initial advice can be sought and publications given.  See below for venues, dates and times.
