The “Kindness Project”, for those in need of bereavement support – Volunteer recruitment

The Bahu Trust are launching ‘The Kindness Project’, an interfaith project to support people in need of bereavement support. They are currently recruiting volunteers who can commit to the four training sessions in January.

Through our community consultations The Bahu Trust have established that there is a real need for bereavement support, with people often struggling to understand what the current COVID – 19 Government guidelines are on funerals, etc.

This all adds to the frustration and pain of losing someone, often causing further anguish and grief for the deceased persons family.  The Bahu Trust is looking for volunteers to join it’s “Kindness project”, aiming to support those people who are going through the difficult processes of losing a loved one. We need your help to identify individuals from all faiths and backgrounds to join our volunteer team, with successful candidates gaining life skills, having the tools to be able to meet the needs of individuals who are struggling to cope with bereavement.
