The Together in Grief programme is for people who have experienced bereavement. The idea is to help people experiencing loss and grief to be physically active in a supportive environment with other people who are dealing with the enormity of bereavement.
We are looking for a number of Leaders to cover programmes which will take place across Hull from September 2021 to September 2022. We have funding for this period only but, depending on outcomes, we may seek to secure further funds to continue programmes if these are successful.
Walks will take place in the daytime as well as evenings. You do not need to be available for every week of the 10-week programme as we hope to recruit a team to ensure cover across all weeks. Ideally though, we would like Leaders to be able to attend at least 6 of the 10 weeks.
Prior to the start of the 10-week programmes, Leaders will need to familiarise themselves with the routes that will be used, therefore a two-week preparation phase is included thus making the commitment for a period of 12 weeks (although once in operation, attendance at all sessions is not necessary as per above).
It is made clear to participants that the facilitators of the walk programmes are not trained grief counsellors. The role is simply to listen, support and offer onward signposting if required.
Two Leaders will be assigned to each walking programme and together their role is to:
The Fitmums and Friends Welfare structure is essential to contribute to good practice within club settings, sessions and programmes to ensure the safety and enjoyment of members, volunteers, parents, coaches and officials.
