Charity offers new online bereavement training for employers

- Advertisement -
THE UK’s largest bereavement charity, Cruse Bereavement Care, has launched a new training webinar for employers to support employees through bereavement.

As the death toll from the coronavirus rises, it is vital that organisations are able to support their employees through bereavement. An awareness of the impact of bereavement and grief has never been more needed.

To support employers at this time, Cruse Bereavement Care have transformed their long-standing Loss and Bereavement workshop, into a new 2.5-hour webinar. The webinar will be tailored to the needs of each organisation and will help attendees gain an understanding of grief and bereavement, become aware of the impact of loss, communicate with bereaved employees and develop an understanding of support organisations.

Cruse have seen a large increase in demand for its external training services since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, currently training over 2 and a half times as many companies as they normally would at this time. Many well-known organisations such as Age UK (Westminster) and Mind (Mid and North Powys) have already benefitted from this invaluable training.

Andy Langford, Clinical Director at Cruse Bereavement Care, said:

“At the moment, tragically, it is more likely than ever that employees are going to be affected by bereavement. This can impact both their work and their relationship with colleagues. It has never been more important for employers to be able to support employees through bereavement.

“We are delighted that we are able to continue our hugely sought-after training, in the form of this new webinar, during what is a hugely difficult time for many companies.”

Feedback from companies who have already undertaken the training include:

‘I really found the training useful, especially in the current climate. It gave me an insight into what is available for anyone who has suffered a loss.’ – Claire, Heathrow Rail

‘Excellent training. The trainer was very clear, informative and engaging. Would recommend this to others.’ – Lizzie, Mid and North Powys Mind

Cruse Bereavement Care has been providing life-changing support to people across the UK for over 60 years. Our services are provided by our network of 5,000 trained volunteers up and down the UK. We are continuing to update our guidance to support bereaved people affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
