News: Meeting to Discuss Bereavement and Loss Support

Wednesday 31 of January. 3-5pm at The Bureau, Glossop

Have you suffered a recent bereavement or found it hard to come to terms with the loss of a loved one from years ago?  

In a safe, confidential and supportive meeting, we would like to hear your views on what local community support or service would help, what’s missing at the moment and what solutions could we come up with together?

Maybe you have some support that’s working and you could share your experience, or perhaps you feel unsupported right now and want to come together to see what might work for you. If you feel you have coped with your bereavement, perhaps you are in a position to share with others how you managed.

Please note this first meeting is not a support group (as yet anyway) but this is certainly one of the possibilities we would like to talk about. 

Professional providers of related or useful services are welcome to contact Liz at High Peak CVS for news on the progress on this initiative, but please note this initial meeting is for potential service users.

You can just turn up to the meeting if you prefer and feel free to bring somebody along if that’s helpful too.    

For more information contact Liz 01663 736426.

News: Carbon Monoxide Awareness Training

Free for organisations supporting people in their own homes.

Do your front line staff and volunteers know how to recognise and deal with a Carbon Monoxide (CO) incident in the home of a vulnerable person they are supporting?  Does your organisation include CO awareness as part of its duty of care to your staff and volunteers?

The Gas Safe Charity is running a free, interactive half day workshop (10am - 1.00pm with lunch) to help organisations in your area become more aware of the sources, signs and symptoms of Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning, understand what to do if you suspect CO may be present and learn of resources that can help you raise awareness.

The closest areas the workshops are running are Chesterfield on the 28 February and Birmingham on the 7 March.
