Telephone Bereavement Support Program Volunteer

Our program matches trained volunteers who have also experienced the loss of someone close to them with caregivers or family members looking for support. The consistency of the volunteer creates a long-standing, trusting relationship.

Have you lost a loved one, and would you like to help support someone else through the grieving process? Although not essential, having experience in counselling or nursing is a great compliment to the position.
