11 Sep Could you be a suicide bereavement support volunteer? (Counties-Manukau)
Suicide has many hidden impacts, particularly for those it leaves behind. Every loss sends a ripple of grief and shock through a family, school or workplace, and community.
That’s why Victim Support’s trained volunteers provide practical help and emotional support for over 3000 people a year affected by suicide all around New Zealand.
We’re looking for compassionate people and good communicators in the Counties-Manukau District who might be prepared to give up some of their time to help people struggling after witnessing or losing a loved one to suicide.
You don’t have to be a trained social worker or counsellor to volunteer. We’ll provide comprehensive training, fully-funded by Victim Support, and ongoing support and coaching from a suicide bereavement specialist employed by Victim Support.
Join us at an information evening or contact us to find out more!
