We require new committee members. You will find that being on a committee that ensures the valued work of BTS continues has its own rewards. Being a committee member does not mean you have to take a role in the Support meetings, these are run by our support volunteers & facilitators.

The meetings are for those bereaved through suicide and are facilitated by trained support workers who have themselves been bereaved through suicide. They offer the opportunity to express your loss in an environment that is caring and safe. Everything shared is treated as strictly confidential. These meetings not only provide the opportunity to share experiences, they present information about the process of loss and grief, and strategies to heal.
