Supporting you in grief

The Centre for Care and Wellbeing (CCW) is a safe and welcoming haven where you are supported in grief, which is a natural response to loss. Our vast experience and research have taught us much about the grieving process and, as everyone will grieve differently, there are many different ways we can help.

We warmly invite you explore our range of support services and please feel free to call us with any questions.

Located within the breathtakingly beautiful gardens of Springvale Botanical Cemetery, CCW was established in 2017 to provide much needed support, care and guidance for all members of the community experiencing grief.

Individual support within a caring community

Although a welcoming space where members of the CCW community can gather, our focus is on helping each individual, with their own unique needs.

We recognise that each person should be allowed to grieve in their own way and in their own time. We are also respectful that many will need their own space.

A key benefit of joining the CCW community is that all visitors are highly respectful, understanding and supportive of each other. Although grieving differently, each visitor ‘gets’ what each other is going through. They are there for each other when needed and this often provides great comfort.

CCW welcomes visitors of all ages, religions and cultures.

Support services

You are always welcome to pop in for a quiet, reflective time or for a coffee and a chat. However, we also offer a variety of relevant and considered physical, emotional and group education sessions facilitated by experienced accredited therapists.

All sessions are free of charge and include music and art, movement, stretch and meditation, group support programs, even walking groups, amongst others. Please see our range of activities, support services and booking information here.

When can I visit?

CCW is currently temporarily closed, but please check back for updates on our new opening hours. You can also view our online wellness videos here.

Is CCW for me?

If you have suffered loss, grief is a normal and natural response. It manifests itself in many different ways and is a very individual experience. To understand more about grief and to consider whether you may benefit from more support, please read Are you grieving? here.
