Visitor and supporter of Bereaved Adults

Help in Bereavement are a listening service supporting the bereaved in Portsmouth, Gosport, Fareham and Havant Borough council areas.

We visit people in their own homes or a mutually agreed public place, usually for around an hour at a time. 

It doesn't matter how long ago the loss occured, we help when asked for as long as needed.


To fulfill this role, you will be caring, empathic, non-judgemental, but no formal qualifications are required.

We have our own training scheme, usually over 6 Wednesday evenings starting in September.

We have team meetings approximately every 6 weeks and usually on a Tuesday evening.

You will arrange all your own appointments with clients, so visiting is very flexible so can be fitted around other commitments easily.
