Before you work with bereaved people you will need specialist training. The core foundation training course Awareness in Bereavement Care has been designed to equip Cruse volunteers with bereavement awareness, skills and knowledge. You will be given all the preparation and support you need. Once you start work as a bereavement volunteer on-going training and supervision is provided.
All our trainers are experienced Bereavement Support Workers and have a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills between them.
If you would like to enrol for the next Awareness in Bereavement Care foundation course, please complete and return the volunteer application form.
We offer one-day workshops for organisations whose personnel may encounter bereavement and bereaved people.
We can also offer short bespoke training sessions to other voluntary groups, schools, care workers and anyone who wants to learn more about bereavement. The courses are designed to give people skills in understanding and communicating with bereaved people.
Please contact us for more information on our wide range of training course and to discuss your requirements.
