Professionals Training

Wiltshire Treehouse can offer bespoke training solutions for organisations across the social care, education, health, voluntary and community sectors. The below information relates to professionals who work with children and young people. However, we can also offer bereavement training to the corporate sector to help teams better understand how to support their bereaved adult colleagues.  

Children will often look to the adults already in their life if they need help with managing a bereavement. Most children will cope well with grief if they can access quality support.

Our training helps professionals to feel confident and well resourced, and able to react effectively when a bereaved child needs support.

We are a trusted training provider and our high quality, bespoke training will help your team to develop the skills and confidence needed to offer bereavement support to the people you work with.
