Our volunteers are essential
Our bereavement volunteers do great work and we couldn't run the service without them. But before they can work directly with clients we have to train them and our Bereavement Support course aims to provide volunteers with the awareness, skills and knowledge needed to work with bereaved people.
We will begin our next volunteer intake in January 2020 and detailed information (including dates, times and venues) can be found on the course information leaflet.
This is an intensive course in which trainees will be required to play an active part. Painful memories may be aroused and the course may not be suitable for those who have experienced a close bereavement within the last year.
We support clients living in Spelthorne, Elmbridge, Runnymede and Woking boroughs so you must either reside or be able to easily travel into these locations.
How to apply
Other Support Volunteer Opportunities
There is a wide range of work and roles which need filling that do not involve direct work with clients.
These can be quite challenging positions for us to fill so we are always very interested to speak to anyone who might be interested in working in areas such as:
- Project management
- Grant and funding applications
Most of these positions do not require direct experience although transferable skills are certainly very useful!
Please contact us if you are interested in helping us with this very important part of our work.
