Volunteering for Shropshire Cruse
We are always looking for volunteers to help us to provide our services. You do not need any formal qualifications or previous experience, but you will need a caring approach to bereaved people.
Volunteers will be reimbursed for travel expenses and can benefit from continuing professional and personal development.
Working with clients
Volunteers wishing to work with clients must first complete the Awareness in Bereavement Care course, which requires a total of 60 hours of study. The course takes place part-time and provides an excellent insight into how people are affected by bereavement. A CRB disclosure will also be required, due to the fact that we work with vulnerable people.
If you are interested in becoming a bereavement support volunteer, please email us for more information and a Shropshire Cruse application form.
