Bereavement Training for Workplaces

Despite death being inevitable in everyone’s lives, it is a topic rarely discussed within organisations. As a result, many people can feel awkward talking about bereavement for fear of saying or doing the wrong thing, and avoid it – until they can’t. 

At Cruse Scotland, we help people to have compassionate and confident conversations around grief and loss, and can support employers to create constructive and empowering spaces for this to happen.

Whether you seek full bereavement transformation across your organisation, or simply wish to equip key members of staff with grief awareness skills, we have a range of workplace training available to fit your needs.  Take a look at the options below, or email us to find out more.
