How to Get Involved:
In January each year BBSS recruit volunteer Support Workers to join our team.
The free 30 hour training programme for volunteers is based on listening and responding to a bereaved person. This training aims to enable volunteers to gain an awareness of the grief process and skills required to support a bereaved person to deal with the impact of their loss. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer Support Worker please email firstname.lastname@example.org . We will contact you at the start of the next recruitment process and forward an application pack.
Dedicated volunteers include 7 Trustees (all of whom have professional backgrounds), Administrator, Supervisors and Volunteer Support Workers. In 1995 BBSS received 48 client referrals; this year over 450 referrals were received. BBSS is a local service for those people living in the Barnsley community.
