As a Volunteer

Bereavement Support Person

Application Form

We have volunteer counsellors and trained active listeners who are from all walks of life and many of them have experienced bereavement or loss in their own lives so they will have some understanding of how you may be feeling.  If you are a qualified counsellor, a student counsellor with your Fitness to Practice or someone who would like to train to be a Bereavement Support person/listener then get in touch with us. (see Recruitment and Training and Contact form at the side.)

 

Recruitment & Training

SDBLSS have recently held a most successful and rewarding Person Centred Bereavement and Loss course, where models & theories of grief and active listening skills were explored.

If you would like to be considered for a place on the next training course, please download a Training Application Form, and send the completed form via email form to our office, details of which can be found on the ‘Reach Out/Contact’  page of this website.

Course Assessment:

Following submission of an application form, you will be invited to a pre-course interview.  Course participants, will undergo further assessments, and requirements which include a minimum of 80% attendance, production of a course journal, demonstrating awareness, understanding and reflection on course content and a satisfactory audio recording of a bereavement support session. This will be explained in more detail during the recruitment process.  The course concludes with a final interview.  Course attendance does not guarantee appointment.

When decided, the date of the next course will be posted here.
