Research indicates that effective bereavement support can contribute to mitigating the potential negative impact of child bereavement and help to improve health outcomes for children, parents and families.

This will include providing young people, parents and families with children with the opportunity to meet others in groups. The postholders will also provide support for those coming into contact with bereaved families in the course of their work, through training, providing information and guidance, and through networking and partnership working opportunities.

Applicants should have a recognised, health, social care, or counselling qualification, experience in working with children, young people and families, excellent communication skills and be passionate about supporting bereaved families and those whose roles bring them into contact with these families.
