Volunteers are a highly valued part of Grief Encounter; we could not achieve the things we do without your  dedicated support.

By volunteering for Grief Encounter you will make a real difference to the lives of bereaved children and young people.

We need your help in the following area:

  • Volunteer in our London offices
  • Train to become a call handler for our free, national grief support helpline, grieftalk
  • Spread the word about our services in your local area
  • Join a Cheer Squad, supporting Team Grief Encounter at a sporting challenges and event
  • Volunteer at one of our annual fundraising events

We are constantly on the lookout for volunteers to support our day to day staff with a wide range of tasks. If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis then we would love to hear from you.

Please complete the Volunteer Enquiry Form and we will be back in touch, to see what you can do to help. Thank you.

GMB Volunteer of The Year 2020

“My mum died when I was 11 and my family and I had no support. When I found out about Grief Encounter I knew instantly that I had to get involved. I wanted to contribute and work in a way that would really make a difference. I love helping set up workshops, attending their events as an extra pair of hands, co-ordinating other volunteers and, my favourite project of all, coordinating the Grief Encounter Children’s Choir. Volunteering has also given me the push to commit to professional therapist training. My journey has been everything I hoped it would be and more.”
