Staying Alive: Kat Roberts & Nic Whitworth in Conversation

‘Staying Alive’ writer Kat Roberts talks to SLOW charity co-founder, Nic Whitworth, about the nature of grief, and how they worked together to research and develop the play.

Warning: Infrequent strong language.


SLOW – Surviving the Loss of your World – is a charity that supports bereaved parents. SLOW North London came about in 2007 when two bereaved mothers, Susie Hanson and Nic Whitworth, decided to provide a space where other bereaved parents could come to meet, take time out, have a cup of tea or just be with others who felt isolated in their grief. The aim at SLOW, as its name suggests, is to allow parents to grieve at their own pace and in their own time scale, and to take strength from the company and support of others; before returning to daily life and its challenges.

SLOW holds regular day-time and evening support groups for parents.  The SLOWSIBS creative workshop for bereaved children is held quarterly.
