Private Facebook Groups

The Compassionate Friends offers a variety of private Facebook Groups. These pages are moderated by bereaved parents, siblings, or grandparents, and may not be accessed unless a request to join is approved by a moderator. A private message will be sent prior to approval. Please reply to the message so we can confirm your request. Please be sure to check your mailbox marked “Message Requests” if you do not receive one in your main mailbox. You may need to look under message requests that have been filtered by Facebook. If you are waiting approval, please message one of the administrators. Join requests to our Facebook groups must be requested personally, therefore when you wish to share the group with someone please pass along the link to the group.
