Suicide Loss Support Peers

 

Grief Support Services are inviting people with lived experienced of suicide bereavement to express interest in joining our Suicide Loss Service Peer team. These volunteer peers provide one-on-one time supporting other people who have also been bereaved by suicide. The peers assist with emotional and practical support and full training is given. We welcome all adult applicants, with particular availability for male volunteers and people from Maori and Pasifika communities. Contact Grief Support Services on 07 578 4480 or email jeanette@griefsupport.org.nz for more details.

 

 

Board Members 

Grief Support Services is looking for new Board members. We have grown and our resources need to grow with us. Grief Support Services is a not for profit organisation offering counselling to those who suffer grief from many causes. The service is provided by trained, professional counsellors located in Greerton. There is a team of thirteen paid staff, volunteers and students.

Due to increasing demand for our services we are looking for a number of volunteers. We need two more people to join us on the Board. These people need to have skills to support the continued growth of Grief Support through execution of our strategic and business plans.

Board members bring their governance skills and passion for a better community to the Board. There is a monthly meeting and some tasks to be completed between meetings. The current Board members have a diverse and experienced skill base. This is an excellent opportunity for experienced or developing governance Board members to contribute to the Western Bay of Plenty community.
