Seeking volunteers for bereavement by suicide support

Are you bereaved of a son or daughter by suicide? Could you offer support, understanding and hope to others who have suffered the traumatic loss of child in this way?

We are looking for volunteers based anywhere in the UK to assist our National Coordinator for parents bereaved by suicide to offer initial peer support and understanding to parents. This may involve taking calls and answering emails from newly bereaved parents referred to you via our Helpline, as well as helping these parents to access TCF’s range of support services.

We are looking for bereaved parent volunteers who are:

• at least four years past your own bereavement (this is flexible)
• emotionally resilient so you can support others
• an empathic, compassionate listener, committed to helping others
• non-judgmental, respectful of others’ circumstances, attitudes and beliefs
• trustworthy and reliable

Please do get in touch with us if you would like to volunteer in our support team helping our National Coordinator to offer peer-to-peer support to parents bereaved by suicide. Contact Ruth at helpline@tcf.org.uk to express your interest or complete this online volunteering application.

Thank you.
