Setting up Bereavement Support Groups for older people’s organisations

We have received funding, from Leeds Community Foundation Harnessing the Power of Communities fund, to provide training and mentoring for third sector organisations working with older people in Leeds, interested in setting up bereavement support groups.

About the Training

The training programme is for staff who want to set up groups within their own organisations and has been devised with help from Sue Sutton at Carers Leeds. Sue runs a successful peer bereavement group at Cross Gates and District Good Neighbours’ Scheme CIO. The training includes:

  • Basic bereavement skills and theories
  • Discussion on self-care and the impact of Covid-19
  • Facilitating a bereavement support group

The groups are small and we adapt the content to meet your needs. This means you will have the chance to ask questions and to meet with other local staff.

Online Sessions

Meetings and training will take place via Zoom. If you would like more details, and/or are interested in taking part, please email Barbara Stewart
