Training Providers

HSC Bereavement Standard 4: Knowledge and Skills highlights the importance of a confident, competent workforce to ensure safe, sensitive and effective practice when caring for dying and bereaved people. Trusts deliver induction and in-service training which provide staff with opportunities to develop and maintain their skills for the delivery of end of life and bereavement care.  Trust Intranet sites have Bereavement sections, where training arranged by Trust Bereavement Coordinators will be posted.

In addition a range of statutory and voluntary organisations offer various levels of training, their websites contain details of the training they provide on end of life and bereavement care.
