Bereavement and Loss Training

Thanks to funding from Leeds City Council, Leeds Older People’s Forum has developed a programme of training and support for staff working with older people in Leeds. It offers training and information to help you offer mental health support to your members or service users, alongside support for you and your colleagues’ own mental health. The training will run from June to December 2021.

As part of the programme Leeds Bereavement Forum is offering three bereavement and loss training sessions on the following dates. Training is free to attend but spaces are limited:


  1. Book Wednesday 7 July | 10am – 1pm
  2. Book Thursday 23  September  | 1:30pm – 4.30pm
  3. Book Thursday 18 November | 1:30pm – 4.30pm

Quotes from previous participants:

“No idea what to say previously, but felt I would be able to show empathy, kindness after training have more awareness of how to react to clients when they open up about their circumstances.”

“I found the theory really interesting and relevant on a work and personal level.”
