Do your people know what to do when someone dies?
Bereavement affects most people during their lifetime, but many don’t know what to do when someone dies.
Do your people, service providers or volunteers know how to answer questions such as:
- What do you need to do when someone dies?
- Who should I contact?
- Where can I get help?
Professional bereavement training for your organisation from the National Bereavement Service and Adroit’s advisors helps you to support your people, clients and customers more effectively and sensitively, with invaluable, practical guidance at what can be an extremely challenging time.

I was delighted with the content and feedback, with over 500 advisers attending the webinar and providing overwhelmingly positive feedback, and many requesting further information.
The comments post the event suggested that this difficult but extremely important subject was something they really welcomed expert guidance on.

“The team at Exizent are so grateful for the time Anne and Lisa took to talk to us about their experience supporting families, and how they carefully tailored the talk for us.
It was so well received and paved the way for a lot of interesting discussions, particularly on the language we should use when talking about loss. Thank you both, it was very thought-provoking.”
Nick Cousins – Founder & CEO, Exizent
“This was exactly the sort of information we were looking for when we contacted you. The comments section was going off the hook with people stating that they’d found the session helpful, reassuring, even someone saying it had lessened their anxiety around this topic.
The training was brilliant, I feel far more educated and up-to-speed in the bereavement space and I think a lot of our colleagues will benefit hugely from this.”
Charlotte Bedford – Senior Policy Advisor, Department for Transport
“NBS facilitated a thought provoking session on bereavement using their expertise to provide employees with an opportunity to better understand and prepare for the bereavement process, encouraging more open discussions on this topic.
NBS wove two Sky personal story speakers into their interactive session to demonstrate to Sky employees how grief can affect people differently followed by Q&A.”
