Volunteering and Support

Wiltshire Treehouse could not run without volunteers.

We have a wide range of activities volunteers can get involved with.

What we can offer

High quality, dedicated training and on-going support as well as professional supervision if you are interested in working with children and young people coping with bereavement. 

We run trainings regularly so get in touch to find out what is involved.  Our training has been developed by Child Bereavement UK and is tried and tested over many decades of working in this field and supported by our own experience of running two groups through the Great Western Hospital historically.  You are in safe hands and so are the families we are working with.

A friendly supportive environment in which to do very rewarding and much needed work to support children and young people in need.

The chance to develop new skills.

What you can offer

Time, energy, patience, empathy and compassion.

A wide range of skills also to include:

  • To work with children and young people face to face or in group settings
  • Developing publicity, by producing brochures, posters, booklets
  • Looking after a stall for us at an event
  • Fundraising, various ways either online, during events, organising events...
  • Baking... or lending a hand in ways we haven’t thought of yet.

Please get in touch with the Bereavement Service Lead for further information about the application process.

We are in the process of recruiting more volunteers with an array of experience and skills.  In return we can offer training In-house and through our partnership national charity, CBUK (Child Bereavement UK) , this will be held early next year, dates to be confirmed. 

We very much look forward to hearing from you if you have worked in the field of bereavement and understand the complexity of this journey and have spare time and can commit to this worthy cause to support young people through their grief This recruitment drive for volunteers is presently ongoing.

The four days training was a huge learning curve. One of the mammoth amount of things I learned was how to keep myself 'safe', something I've struggled with in the past.
