How to get involved

STARS has trained volunteers to work along side the paid staff to provide one-to-one bereavement support for bereaved children and young people up to 25yrs.

Following acceptance after an interview volunteers enter a training programme of 30hrs before beginning work with clients.
There is a six month probationary period with stars when client work begins.
At the end of the probationary period a final interview is conducted - this enables both parties to establish if the volunteer placement is right for all parties.

Students on College placements are required to complete the 30hrs training before face to face counselling work with clients.

STARS undertake to provide Supervision and on-going training throughout the period of working with clients.

All members of STARS are required to complete and enhanced DBS clearance
