FiG Volunteer

Nicky helping two childrenBecoming a Families in Grief Volunteer

“I am a mother, qualified nursery nurse and a teaching assistant. I got involved with Families in Grief because one of FiG’s support workers came to visit a family at the school I worked in, before and after their mother died. I had an interest in the work and decided to take up her offer of training and then working with a FiG group… I get a lot of satisfaction from the work and it gives me a sense of doing something worthwhile.”

Elaine – FiG Volunteer

FiG volunteers come from all backgrounds, but they all have a passion for one thing, and that’s to help and support bereaved children, young people and their families in North Devon and Torridge.

What happens after I contact Families in Grief asking to become a FiG volunteer?

You’ll be asked to come to Familes in Grief and meet some of the people who work here, who will talk through your responsibilities as a volunteer. You will have your criminal records checked and once cleared be invited to take part in a special programme of bereavement training. Once you have completed your training you will be able to take part in some of the groups we run, as well as any other activities that help Families in Grief.
