The Aim and Functions of the Bereavement Care Network
To improve co-ordination and strengthen partnerships to support the delivery of bereavement care by connecting people; identifying services; and promoting education and support for people involved in bereavement care.
The specific functions of the bereavement care network will be to:
- Collate and maintain a directory of services on a regional and state-wide level. This will include up-to-date information such as the service location, contact details, and service parameters including client restrictions and costs.
- Manage an accessible list of members and organisations comprising the bereavement care network. Inclusion of a description of their background, credentials, expertise and service/s offered will facilitate ‘warm’ referrals.
- Provide a listing of relevant educational resources that are accessible to formal and informal bereavement care providers.
- Distribute relevant information on current news and events. This may include upcoming forums, workshops, conferences, CPD events, grants, tenders and job opportunities
