Grief Support Groups Support Volunteer - East Grinstead (TD)

Could you become a Buddy to a child or young person who has suffered the death of someone close to them?

We run Grief Support Groups for bereaved families over a six week period currently held in Reigate, East Grinstead and Guildford.

Comprehensive training is provided and volunteers always work alongside professional Grief Support Workers.

Groups carry out various activities to encourage and remember the person who has died, to help to process the trauma, build and keep memories and learn some coping strategies.

The time you give would be approximately 3 hours per week for the length of the 6 week programme.


What skills do I need?

This role requires experience of bereavement, ability to sympathise/emphasise, ability to work in a team participating in activities.  Use of a car (as venues are not easily accessible by public transport.
