Volunteer with the Alder Centre

Do you feel you would you like to get involved and Volunteer with the Alder Centre?

Child Death Helpline

A helpline for all those affected by the death of a child of any age. 
Potential volunteers must be bereaved parents whose child died at least three years ago. Following an initial training course of 30 hours, volunteers would be expected to undertake two helpline duties a month.


A number of our Child Death Helpline volunteers also provide befriending support. Befrienders have experienced the death of a child and are specially trained and supervised to work with the newly bereaved.

Welcomers and Reception support

Providing a welcome and hospitality for visitors to the Alder Centre. Welcomers may or may not have experienced the death of a child, and will be sensitive to the needs of those who are bereaved.


Funds are raised by volunteers and families who benefit from the services we provide. Join our team to help raised much needed funds that let us give extra help through the year, and the hospitality and fixtures in the Centre.
