Liverpool Bereavement Service recognises as essential the vital contribution volunteers make to ensure the success of our service. We do require those working with clients in formal one to one counselling sessions to be qualified either to Diploma or Foundation Degree standard. Alternatively, they must be in their final year of qualification to gain pre-qualification, placement experience.

Placement students will be supported by their Tutors, fully trained qualified counselling Supervisors and by Bereavement Service Staff and Directors throughout their placement.

Prior to becoming a volunteer, Bereavement training will be provided by trainers experienced in supporting those suffering from loss.

From time to time the Service may seek voluntary support for administrative work. We would welcome enquiries from those seeking such an opportunity.
