Training | Cruse Bereavement Care

0808 808 1677

The work of Cruse is done by people like you.  We need new volunteers all the time.

In Greenwich we offer one training a year for people wanting to become Bereavement Volunteers - the mainstay of our service.  We are particularly keen to attract people who are local, and who are NOT undertaking additional studies in counselling.  We also welcome volunteers who are on other training courses.

The only criteria to become a bereavement volunteer, are that:

  • You have not been bereaved in the last two years
  • You must be life experienced (it is particularly helpful if you have experienced bereavements)
  • You must be patient and kind, and have personal courage
  • You must be an outstanding listener

If you feel this could be you, then please email

We will send you an application pack and invite you for an interview.
