St Helena Hospice expanding bereavement service
4:00pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
A HOSPICE will be expanding its bereavement service later this year, but needs 27 new volunteers to make it possible.
St Helena Hospice offers free support to people in the community who have been recently bereaved.
Volunteers are given details of people who have recently lost a loved one and offer support over the phone or through home visits.
Most people have monthly meetings with their assigned volunteers for about a year after their loss, but this can vary.
Full training will be given to all volunteers.
