Facilitator Training

Training Information

Facilitator Training - All Training Programmes currently postponed.

Some training sessions and Rainbows groups had to stop mid-training and mid-programme. We are currently consulting with other bereavement services and our own clinical support team to produce a set of guidelines for centres around the best approaches to adopt to resume / complete those programmes once we are returning to normal, post corona virus closures.
These guidelines will issue once they are completed.
Please be aware that there is an application process for training.
