Local support contact

Local Support Contacts befriend and support parents via the telephone, face-to-face meetings and sometimes email too. They will put parents (often with similar experiences) in touch with one another so that they can support each other and develop friendships.

We offer all Local Support Contacts a 'How to Help' day to offer you support and information about The Compassionate Friends and supporting others. You will also have the support of a regional coordinator.

Our next 'How to Help' days for new local support contacts and volunteers are:

  • London: 30 September 2017
  • Leeds/Sheffield area: April/May 2018 (tbc)
  • (Scotland - info and training available on an individual basis).

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.
