Bereavement Volunteers

Bereavement Support Volunteers provide one-to-one support through our service to people who have been bereaved. We recruit approximately every four years and applicants have to complete an application form, attend for interview and, if selected, complete an intensive eighty hours training programme prior to becoming a Bereavement Support Volunteer. The Bereavement Support Service is under the Social Work department and the volunteers are supervised by the Bereavement Co-ordinator.

We do not accept applications from professional counsellors, psychologists or social workers and applicants must not have experienced bereavement within the previous two years. There are currently no vacancies.
