Suicide bereavement charity, HUGG, seeking volunteers nationwide

By 23rd October 2023No Comments

Healing Untold Grief Groups (HUGG), the national suicide bereavement support charity, is conducting a nationwide volunteer recruitment campaign and will hold an online information session for interested parties this Friday, October 27 from 1.15pm to 1.45pm

HUGG provides a free, non-judgmental, and safe space where people bereaved by suicide can share their experiences and feelings, and receive and offer support to each other.

HUGG support groups meet every second Tuesday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm, in-person and/or online. The groups are facilitated by trained volunteers with lived experience of suicide loss.

Bereavement by suicide shares characteristics with other bereavements but it is also different. Having lived experience of suicide bereavement, a requirement for becoming a HUGG group facilitator, ensures a better understanding and appreciation of the emotions and trauma group members may be going through.

HUGG provide facilitator training, mentoring and on-going support to all of its volunteers.

Are you interested in volunteering with HUGG?

• Do you have good inter-personal skills, and enjoy working as part of a team?
