Bereavement and loss training

During the pandemic many people have experience a bereavement or loss. In North Tyneside we want to develop a greater understanding of how we can support people through bereavement and have developed a range of training aimed at people within the Community and Voluntary Sector as well as across statutory organisations. This training is at three different levels, all sessions are delivered by organisations that have many years of experience of supporting people with loss and bereavement. The expectation is that people will attend the session that best fits with their role. Please click on the link for each session to book your place.
