Training to be a Bereavement Support Volunteer within Gloucestershire

The work of a BV can be challenging at times, but can also be enormously rewarding. You will be in a position to make a real difference to our clients, as they live life without their loved one who has died.

Our training has recently been updated in the light of the current COVID 19 pandemic.

We are currently training remotely using zoom webinars. This training is being co-ordinated by our Cruse Birmingham office and is being done in groups of around 10-12 potential volunteers. It comprises of a number of 2-5 hour modules, facilitated by a Cruse trainer. Handouts are provided ahead of training and there is full facilitation during the modules, homework to do alongside them and up to date bereavement theory and support practice included.

The course is free to those who go on to volunteer for us.

Initial interviews will be done on zoom by Cruse Gloucestershire and you will have a chance to ask any questions you have – or contact the office at or telephone 01242 252518.
