Could you volunteer to help support bereaved people?

Hull & District Branch is running a 3 Day Bereavement Support Foundation Course
at our office in Hull at Sight Support (formerly HERIB) on Beverley Road.
This is to train people to become Cruse bereavement support volunteers.
No previous experience in using counselling skills is required as the course includes this.
Due to the nature of the course, it would not be suitable for anyone who has had
a significant personal bereavement within the last  2 years.
Dates: Saturdays 10am – 5pm September 8th & 22nd 22 and Oct 20th 2018
All applicants must attend all three days.
Cost: £150 per individual / £200 if being paid for by an organisation.
(Concessions will be available where appropriate)
For more information and an application form contact Lorraine, Area Administrator
on 01482 440072 or email  
We look forward to hearing from you. 
After the Foundation Course, a post course interview is held for people
wanting to volunteer to support bereaved clients.
If you opt to join one of our branches, there are 2 further training days
Dates: Saturdays 3rd and 10th November for our Face to Face Module.
There is no further cost for this Module which prepares you for the ‘work’
undertaken by Cruse volunteers. This does require a considerable amount of
commitment in both time and effort, but is extremely rewarding.
