Could you be a Bereavement Comfort Call Volunteer?
Enhancing compassionate support in Northern Trust
The Covid-19 pandemic and the complex circumstances associated with dying, death and bereavement has led to an increased demand for bereavement support. A small number of esteemed volunteering opportunities have arisen within the Northern Trust known as ‘Bereavement Comfort Call’ Volunteers.
Northern Health & Social Care Trust are looking for empathic individuals with good listening skills to join their dedicated team of volunteers to provide this new and innovative service. Volunteers will make timely calls to the next of kin of those who die in hospital. During a Comfort Call, volunteers will offer condolences, a listening ear and signposting, particularly to those who are not aware of support available or those who require additional support.
