Introduction to Supporting through Grief and Loss webpage header

Would you like to increase your knowledge and understanding of the impact of grief and loss and develop skills to improve your confidence and help you to support bereaved people?

Our St Luke’s Bereavement Training ECHO is available, free of charge to anyone in Sheffield that supports people who are bereaved, whether on a voluntary or occupational basis.  

The training has been created by the Bereavement Service for St Luke’s Hospice Sheffield, in collaboration with the St Luke’s Project Echo team who will be delivering this module remotely. The project is in collaboration with Age Better in Sheffield, a National Lottery Community Fund programme aiming to reduce loneliness and social isolation in people aged 50 or above. The programme works in partnership with Sheffield Mind who lead on the Ripple Effect project offering one to one support to bereaved older people.
