Become a Grief Encounter ambassador

As a non-government funded charity, we rely on the generosity of our donors and volunteers to help us provide support to as many bereaved children, young people and their families as we can, for as long as they need it. In this new role, and as part of our network of volunteers, you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference, whether it’s for minutes, hours, days, or even months.

As an Ambassador Volunteer, you can get involved in various ways:

  • Spreading the word: Inspire your family, friends, colleagues, and online networks to support our work and fundraise in different ways.
  • Community Champion: You can also ‘champion’ Grief Encounter in your local community, giving inspiring talks about our the work of our clinical team and the demand we are facing, to a variety of community groups.
  • Events: Join our cheer squads at national events such as the London or Bristol Marathon, or help us at one of our many fun days or workshops.

To be an Ambassador Volunteer, we’re looking for individuals:

  • Who have a personal connection to Grief Encounter and the work we do.
  • Enjoy fundraising and thinking of creative ways to support charities
  • Looking for a varied and flexible volunteering role in the charity sector.

In return for your time and effort, we offer you the opportunity to visit your local therapy centre and meet our team, connect with like-minded people, and access resources to enable you to fundraise in your wider community. You will also be able to give short talks/presentations on the charity, receiving support from our expert fundraising team, and be given regular updates on how your time and fundraising is making a difference to real families lives.

If you’re passionate about supporting our cause and want to help us make a positive impact on bereaved children and young people’s futures, we encourage you to apply to become a Grief Encounter Ambassador Volunteer today.

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.”
