Our List Of Activities

Peer Support – meetings are held in a private home every second month. This is an opportunity to share in the grieving process with others who know what you are going through. A professional grief counsellor is in attendance.

Social club and/or Activity session – These activities are held every other month, alternating with the Peer Support Meetings. It may be a get-together over a cup of coffee, a guest speaker, or a lesson in yoga or meditation, cooking, bridge, art, stuffing toys for sick kids, pottery or other activity.

Monday Movers - held at the Lamm Library on Mondays at 11am, and free to our members. Our instructor Terry Bahat is a personal trainer, ex-Israeli army instructor and health coach. Classes are for women only, aged 50 plus and will be varied, including stretching, balance, boxing, Pilates, posture, strength training, flexibility and stamina - all delivered with Terry's infectious enthusiasm. A light lunch is provided after the class. JBP is proud to acknowledge Gandel Philanthropy for their support.

Girl Time – meet up with a few other mothers. Share your treasured memories—or just some coffee and quiet time together!

Just some one to talk to – maybe you just want to speak to some one, one-on-one, who knows what you are going through. We can put you in touch with other members.

Lending Library – we have established our JBP ‘Quiet Room’ (for our members only) at the Lamm Library in Caulfield, with appropriate books, a computer, CDs, DVDs and comfy furniture. Borrowing from the library is free for all bereaved parents/grandparents. Click here for details.

Tree of Remembrance – We have a memorial plaque with an embossed tree, and members may buy a leaf in memory of their beloved child. Click here for details.

Unless we incur excess expenses, there is no or minimal charge for meetings or services, (except for a leaf on the plaque), as we try to subsidise them with donations.
