The Alder Centre

Befriending

Alder Centre banner image.jpg

The Alder Centre recognises that not all those bereaved will want, or benefit from, professional counselling and may prefer the support of a volunteer who is also a bereaved parent themselves and is trained in the skill of ‘befriending’.

The befriending service at The Alder Centre aims to provide bereaved adults a 1-2-1 listening ear and peer support for anyone affected by the death of a child of any age. 

Befriending is not counselling but may can be in-addition to counselling and group work, or as an alternative.

Meetings rae arranged by the Centre’s Volunteer Co-ordinator. We can arrange for you to meet via telephone or video call, or face to face with one of our trained bereaved parent volunteers at the Alder Centre.

**Covid-19 Update: Our face to face sessions are now running again, though online/ telephone sessions are also still available, if required** **
