Full list of Child Bereavement UK Training

I've attended many workshops run by Child Bereavement UK over the years and continue to do so, as I learn something new each time. It gives me the opportunity to meet others in my specialist field of work, to share best practice and bring that learning to UHCW for the benefit of patient care and staff education.

-Sam Collinge, Bereavement Support Specialist Midwife, University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW)

We provide a wide range of training, consultancy and support services across the UK to help professionals better understand and meet the needs of bereaved children and families. All our training is based on learning from families, is underpinned by relevant theory and evidence-based practice, and acknowledges the importance of appropriate communication and support for future wellbeing. 

Our training is delivered by skilled facilitators, combining subject knowledge and facilitation expertise with extensive experience of working in their particular field of bereavement. All our training is CPD certified and participants receive certificates of attendance. In addition, some specific training is also accredited by professional bodies.

We provide:

  • A comprehensive programme of training courses
  • Fully interactive training that uses a variety of teaching methods to ensure that participants gain skills, confidence and strategies in supporting bereaved children and families.
  • Bespoke training to meet your organisation’s needs
  • Consultancy and evaluation for statutory, voluntary and corporate sectors
  • Supervision for practitioners working with bereaved families
  • A range of resources available online
  • An opportunity for  participants to reflect on their own feelings and experiences to support them in their work.

We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training; our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement. Please email us to discuss: [email protected]
