Grief Chat: Knife Crime


In these informal Grief Chats, we bring together two people who have been bereaved in a similar way, to discuss their personal experiences of grief.

This Chat is about what it feels like to lose someone to knife crime and our guests are both bereaved mothers, Alison Cope and Rachel Webb.

Alison is the mother of Joshua Ribera who was murdered in 2013. Since Joshua’s death, Alison has worked tirelessly to share her son’s life and death story to educate young people about the real consequences of youth violence. Rachel is the bereaved mother of Kyron, who was murdered in 2017. She is the author of Kyron: Hello Madness, Goodbye Joy.

Your host is Mark Lemon, the writer and podcaster behind the five-star rated podcast series, Grief is my Superpower.

All Grief Chat events will be available to view from 09:00 on Friday, October 30th until 19:00 on Sunday, November 1st. You will receive a reminder email to tune in 24hrs beforehand.
