Trinity has today announced a new drive to recruit volunteers with an interest in providing bereavement support. This exciting opportunity will mean that volunteers who successfully complete an eight session training programme will join Trinity's Bereavement Service as a Bereavement Support Volunteer.

The Foundations to Bereavement Support Training Programme will provide trainee volunteers with the relevant skills and knowledge to begin safe and professional relationships with bereaved clients at Trinity. 

Mat Hay, Volunteer Services Manager at Trinity said: "We are delighted to be recruiting for Bereavement Support Volunteers again. This unique volunteering role will equip trainees with detailed, practical and robust training to enable them to confidently deliver sensitive bereavement support to clients.

"It is an incredible opportunity for volunteers looking to build their skills and experience in this area to do so in a safe and supported way while making a real difference to the families and loved ones of those who have died under Trinity's care."

The Training Programme will consist of 18 modules which will be covered during eight Saturday workshops and delivered through lectures, seminars, skills practice, peer discussion and case studies. The programme will also see trainees complete an essay, a reflective journal and a skills practice assessment.

Applications are being accepted until the deadline of Sunday 22 April, with interviews being held on Wednesday 2 May.
