The BSF Course has been designed specifically for Cruse volunteers, to equip them with the awareness, skills and knowledge to offer the range of services that Cruse provides.

Our Loss and Bereavement Awareness workshop is designed for anyone encountering bereaved people in their professional lives. These are helpful for anyone who wants to understand the issues surrounding bereavement and how to communicate with clients and customers after someone close to them has died. These training days are interactive and informative and provide an opportunity to have your questions about this taboo subject answered.
The next local workshop will take place in Bristol on 19th November 2019.
