Awareness Raising

Grampian Child Bereavement Network offers awareness training workshops for groups of professionals and organisations who are working with children and young people.
2 hour workshops focus on understanding the grieving process for children and young people, and suggestions of how to respond appropriately. Workshops are interactive, with presentations, discussions and scenarios. 

Specific Training

GCBN offers training workshops on the following topics:

  • Keeping Memories
  • Safe Supporting Children and Families following a major incident
  • Supporting Children and Families following a sudden death

Cost of workshops is free but as GCBN is a small charity travel expenses and a donation is helpful.

For more information and to book a training session please

E-mail or telephone 01224 594099

The training can be tailored to suit the needs of your organisation, the age of children you work with and the work that you are involved in. This includes consideration of particular experiences of loss including if where sudden or traumatic loss has affected children who you are working with. 
 Our trainers are all volunteers who have knowledge, skills and experience in working with and supporting bereaved children and young people and their families.
 Most training can be undertaken over a half day session (about 3 hours) but we will always try to tailor sessions to suit the needs of individual organisations where this is required i.e we would tailor a request from a school for an  after school session or to be integrated within an In Service day. 
If you would like to find out more or have discussion about the training needs of your organisation please contact GCBN coordinator on 01224 549099.
