Bereavement and Grandparent Support Worker
We are looking for someone with a background in bereavement support to join our fantastic Family Support Team. In this part time role you will be supporting families where a child or young person has died through illness, sudden death or suicide along with families who have a palliative child. You will understand the importance of timely, meaningful, compassionate and non-judgmental support for all ages.
You will be providing practical and emotional needs-led support services, with the main aim being to maximise the opportunities and support available to them. Your role will be to provide advice and guidance to professionals on supporting children and young people who are grieving or have experienced loss. You will also arrange events across the year to bring families together.
The right person will also need to be happy building a collaborative alliance with our partners (e.g., Hospitals, Community Teams etc.), expanding our bereavement support across all of the hospitals where we work.
Whilst our bereavement support develops and grows you would also develop our Grandparent Support service, extending our Family Support service to a select number of grandparents needing emotional, needs-led support.
