Before attending a group Slide Away session, you will meet a member of the Slide Away team. This will give you the chance to talk about anything you are worried about and ask any questions you may have. If you are attending a Memory Day, this meeting is likely to be a virtual meeting. If you are attending a Workshop you will be visited in school by the Slide Away team member. Our aim is to make you feel comfortable and ready to attend a Slide Away group session as this will help you get the most out of your time with Slide Away.
When you join a group session, we usually play a quick game to help you find out a little bit more about each other. You may feel a little bit nervous initially, but we all help each other to feel comfortable. All the other young people are there because someone they know died too, so they may be feeling the same as you.
