Glasgow: Bereavement in Befriending FULLY BOOKED


Bereavement in Befriending has been designed due to feedback and a high request from Befriending Services. 

This course is designed to support both volunteers and staff with the difficulties and barriers they may face when dealing with a bereavement. Though this may be a more common circumstance in older services, this course is designed to cater to all ages and projects.

Topics covered include: 

  • What is bereavement / grief?
  • Theories on understanding bereavement
  • Communication and empathy 
  • Resilience
  • Death and bereavement in different cultures
  • Supporting service users who are bereaved
  • Supporting volunteers who are bereaved
  • Shared experience and networking throughout 

As this course is a Pilot, we will be running this course at £45 per participant, £55 non-members. Both staff and volunteers are welcome to attend. This will run online Autumn 2020 for those that cannot travel and pilot cost will be honoured for one run.
