Who should attend?



This day is for all professionals who come into contact with bereaved children and young people in the course of their work, whether in the statutory or voluntary sector.



We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.



Fee



Fees for participants include course materials, a CPD certificate of attendance, refreshments and light lunch. We would like to thank the Scottish Government for kindly supporting this training day.
