Bereavement Support Foundation (BSF) Course

The BSF Course has been designed specifically for Cruse volunteers, to equip them with the awareness, skills and knowledge to offer the range of services that Cruse provides.  Anyone wishing to volunteer with Cruse to work with clients must undertake this course.  We also welcome applications from professionals from other organisations who feel they may benefit from this training.


The course will take the form of three core Foundation days for all new Bereavement Volunteers, followed by an elective, dedicated to one of the five services:

  • face-to-face (2 days)
  • ongoing telephone support (2 days)
  • email support (2 days)
  • group support (3 days)
  • Children & Young People (CYP) support (4 days)

If you would like to be added to the waiting list for our future courses, please contact us on 01722 411938 or email salisbury@cruse.org.uk
