Bereavement Care Awareness

Bereavement Care Awareness

The Bereavement Care Awareness course has been produced as part of Care for the Family’s bereavement training for churches. It is useful for clergy, church leaders, pastoral care leaders or any volunteer interested in supporting bereaved people – whether they are already engaged in bereavement support or are considering the possibility of developing it.

Find out more about the course and why we think it’s important for churches to support bereaved people. Read an article about how an Anglican minister discovered the need for this course through her own bereavement journey.
