Together SiMBA and CHAS ( are delighted to offer FREE Person Centred Bereavement, Palliative Care and End of Life - SiMBA/CHAS Study Days which are FREE for all delegates to attend. 

These courses are open to all Health Care Professionals and Students but would be particularly beneficial to staff or students working in maternity and neonatal care. They will give you an opportunity to enhance your knowledge on perinatal, end of life and bereavement care when supporting families facing and coming to terms with the death of their baby. You will also receive an attendance certificate at the end of the day which you can use as part of your professional development and re-validation.

"I am writing to thank you for the generous support and expertise you provided to the training day at Ninewells recently. Daryl has provided me with feedback from the attendees, which clearly shows how beneficial they found it. I sincerely hope we can continue to work with you to improve the care given to bereaved families across Tayside." Justine Craig, Chief Midwife, Woman & Child Health, NHS Tayside


Facilitator Training

All of our volunteer support group facilitators are trained by Child Bereavement UK. Everyone has attended a 2 day residential course fully funded by SiMBA to ensure that they are offering the best possible support to those who attend our monthly support groups. In addition each volunteer support group facilitator will also receive a quarterly support call from Child Bereavement UK to ensure that they are personally receiving the support that they need to allow them to support others .
