One-to-one Sessions

We offer single session individual support sessions for those eligible for closed groups, and for those who have lost a loved one. Individual support is a place where you can feel safe to share your story with someone who has experienced a similar loss, and is a trained volunteer. This meeting is a chance for you to get some immediate support and also to explore the possibility of joining a mutual support bereavement group.

Please complete this form in order to schedule your first one-to-one call with a volunteer from Bereaved Families of Ontario-Toronto. All information provided is used to help serve our community better by identifying areas of need and support. Only Bereaved Families of Ontario-Toronto will have access to this information and will not be used in any way to discriminate against those seeking further information. Your responses are kept private and secure. If you have any other questions, please reach out to us at
