What is involved?

We are looking for volunteers to offer support to people at the Bereavement Café in a variety of different roles:

  • Are you a good listener and can offer an empathetic ear to someone who is bereaved?
  • Could you offer a really warm welcome each week to individuals as they arrive?
  • Do you have skills in making easy conversation with a variety of different people?
  • Would you enjoy serving tea and coffee for the group to enjoy?

We would ask you to:

  • Commit to 2 – 3 hours per week on a regular basis. The Café will be weekly on a Thursday morning from 10am – 12 midday
  • Attend relevant training and induction
  • To adhere to the policies relating to this role

What is NOT involved?

  • By becoming a bereavement café volunteer you are not providing counselling
  • You are not required to have an in-depth knowledge of the grief process
  • You will not be responsible for people experiencing complicated grief
