Being There has an excellent free training package for volunteers, which includes listening and communication skills, raising awareness about issues around cancer and other life-limiting illness and meeting with a current volunteer to discuss their experiences.
Volunteer training programmes are run at various times in the year. These are open to the volunteers of other voluntary organisations.
