Volunteer Week 2018
Here at Balloons we rely on volunteers to carry out vital bereavement support for children, young people and young adults. Volunteers are the backbone of our charity and we simply could not do it without them. That’s why during Volunteer Week 2018, from 1st – 7th June, we’ll be sharing how we use our volunteers and the difference they make to those they support. We’re delighted to have over 50 volunteer Grief Support Workers at present and they’re all amazing!
Our volunteers complete an 8-day training course before starting as Grief Support Workers but there also lots of opportunities once you start as a volunteer such as; monthly meetings, guest speakers, additional bolt-on training, all of which is delivered in-house by our wonderful staff team. Here’s four of our volunteers at a recent ‘Creative Carousel’ workshop, testing out new skills and learning to play our new CBT board game.
