Good Grief FAQ


Here are answers to some popular questions. You might also find our Resources page helpful, which provides the website addresses for many grief and bereavement organisations.

Where can I go for further support?

We understand that participating in the festival may have been an emotional experience for you. Our amazing partner organisations offer support and you’ll find a list of those resources here. We encourage you to reach out to them – and to those around you – if you need a little support.

How can I contact the Good Grief team?

Our Contact page is here. Do get in touch with us via email, via our fun community Blackboard, or through our Social Media channels (links top of page).

I wasn’t able to attend Good Grief Festival, can I still watch events?

If you’d like to have access to all of the recorded Good Grief material after the event, you can choose to pay a one-off £20 fee. This will give you access to our content for three years after the event, via our Grief Channel. This will be available to view from November 16, by which time all events will include cc subtitles. If you have signed up already, you will receive logins when we launch on November 16th. Click here to sign up.

Can I contact a speaker directly after the festival?

Most of our speakers and facilitators work in the public realm. We have included links to people’s websites, organisations and social media channels as appropriate. If you wish to contact anyone you’ve discovered as part of Good Grief, please do so using their own channels. View Facilitators.

I want to be part of Good Grief (speaker, supporter etc)

Thank you for your interest. Given the nature of the event, we have been inundated with ideas and promotion requests. Although the programme is full for this year, we hope to collaborate with as many of you as possible in future. We would love to stay in contact and will certainly keep you in the loop for future Good Grief events. Please share more details about your work with us via email here.

How do I get my CPD points?

The content of the Good Grief Festival counts towards CPD credits. We will contact Grief Channel subscribers on Monday, November 10th so you can opt in to receive a certificate of attendance.

Who is behind Good Grief?

Good Grief (part-funded by the Wellcome Trust) is the concept of Dr Lucy Selman, a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bristol’s School of Population Health Sciences. Dr Lesel Dawson from UoB is another organiser. The event director and co-curator is Aisling Mustan with support from a team of Bristol-based creatives. We are a very small team so please bear that in mind when contacting us.
