Training for Bereavement Volunteers:
Bereavement Support Foundation Course: this is the national Cruse foundation course for anybody wanting to work with our clients as a qualified bereavement volunteer. We do require all applicants to live in the Borough of Richmond and we only consider people looking for placements in exceptional circumstances.
See our Bereavement Support Foundation course page for further details and how to apply.
Ongoing Professional Development
In addition to the foundation training, we run an active ongoing training programme every year designed to update and deepen knowledge and experience. Cruse volunteers are required to attend continuing professional development (or appropriate personal development events) for 15 hours each year.
