Could you be a bereavement support volunteer?
Our specialist support service, Just ‘B’, is looking for people to train as volunteers to work with adults who are living with bereavement.
Just ‘B’ gives local people a safe and confidential space to understand, express and cope with their grief.
A comprehensive 12-week evening training course starts in the Autumn to prepare and equip volunteers with the skills needed to carry out this satisfying role.
Formal qualifications are not needed, but good listening skills are vital.
Previous experience in offering emotional or bereavement support is welcome, although not essential. The training will cover grief theory, listening skills and ways of working creatively with clients, and is delivered by Just ‘B’s specialist bereavement team. Following training, successful volunteers spend around three hours a week supporting adults living with bereavement.
As part of the team, volunteers are offered plenty of support and supervision to ensure the experience is a beneficial one for all concerned. If this sounds like something for you, e:
