Local support group contact / facilitator

A support group facilitator runs (often with one or two other facilitators) a monthly support group meeting for bereaved parents, siblings and/or grandparents. Support group facilitators create a caring, safe and supportive atmosphere that encourages group members to share their grief and experiences.

We offer all support group facilitators an Information and Training Day which equips you with the information and skills to run group meetings, as well as advice in applying one’s own experience to support others. The facilitator also has the support of our regional coordinators. The group facilitator role is a very rewarding one, and epitomises the best of peer support – in supporting others, we also support ourselves.

Our next Information and Training Days for Facilitating a TCF Support Group are:

  • LONDON - 5 October 2019
  • (Information and Training in Scotland on an individual basis)
  • EXETER - 6 June 2020

There are also Regional Meetings for any bereaved parent who would like to volunteer facilitating a support group or supporting locally in other ways.

For more information, a volunteer application form and/or to reserve a place on any of the above days please contact us at info@tcf.org.uk or 0345 120 3785.
