Training for the volunteer

Training for the volunteer

All SAMM volunteers have themselves been bereaved through murder or manslaughter. Our specialist training involves looking at the effects of traumatic bereavement and although our volunteers know at first hand these effects, in our training we bring together in an easily understood format all the many complicated strands of this type of bereavement.

This enables our volunteers to understand how people cope in different ways with the trauma in their lives and enables them to support others in a unique way by both having the personal experience but also the knowledge to back that experience up.

New SAMM members are often amazed by the level of empathy and support that they receive from our volunteers.
