My boss couldn't believe the price differences. I managed to get a cremation for only £1080 by shopping around. Really great training.
Do you come into occasional contact with clients facing a bereavement? This workshop addresses the practical and communication skills you need to better support clients to avoid debt and distress caused by high funeral costs.
Is this for you?
Bereavement is a significant, life-changing event and it can be difficult to discuss. Focused on those providing direct support to people but with less experience in discussing bereavement, this workshop empowers you to help clients with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, or who have experienced a sudden bereavement.
