Could you help people who have lost someone special?

We're looking for caring people who are interested in training to become bereavement support workers to help us support people in the community who have lost someone special to them.

If accepted you'll complete an intensive foundation programme from September 2018 in preparation for working with clients to provide a listening ear outside of their family and friends.

This is a rewarding role which will require time and commitment from volunteers.

Closing date: Friday 25th May Interviews to be held on: Wednesday 13th & Thursday 21st June.

Skills

Fantastic communication skills and a genuine interest in people. You'll need to be willing to learn and to reflect on your own progress and practice. You'll need a clean driving licence and use of a car to visit clients.
