About the opportunity
We are looking for bereavement volunteers to provide emotional and psychological support for (primarily) children aged 3-18 years (and some adults). 1:1 volunteers work with three clients per week (four hours per week commitment). They are based in either our Newark Centre or outreach venues across Nottinghamshire, including Rushcliffe, City, Mansfield and Bassetlaw. Group volunteers assist with monthly peer support groups, family groups and ad hoc workshops e.g. Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christmas.

About the Children’s Bereavement Centre
The Children’s Bereavement Centre supports 3–18-year-olds and their families from Nottinghamshire and South Lincolnshire. They are all experiencing life-changing trauma due to the death or terminal illness of someone important to them. We offer 1:1 bereavement support sessions for both young people and adults. We also provide a peer support group, specialist workshops, community therapeutic events and an annual bereavement residential. We deliver training for schools, professionals, and volunteers. Our aim is to provide a network of effective support around every bereaved young person, to ensure the best outcomes for all.
