Supporting new bereavement peer support groups to develop across BNSSG

Location: Online, via Zoom
Time: Starting 5th July

We are offering a free training programme to guide people through the process of setting up their own bereavement peer-support group in a way that is sustainable and does not rely on funding, using an Asset Based Community Development approach (ABCD).

The training is based on the successful model of the STAR (Share, Talk and Remember) bereavement peer-support group in Stockwood in Bristol which provides free support for people grieving from a bereavement or difficult transition in their life. The course will be delivered by Jan Perry, STAR Network Co-ordinator & Freelance Trainer.

The training will embed the core principles of the original STAR group to create a network of STAR bereavement peer-support groups which are self-sustaining, have strong foundations and are led by local residents.

The course is particularly aimed at local residents who are interested in setting up a bereavement peer-support group in their local neighbourhood and community workers who can support them with this. Please do share this opportunity with anyone who may be interested.


About the training course

The free training course involves 4 workshops which will take place online via Zoom, followed by a reflection workshop 1 -2 months later.
