"Without you and your fantastic service I certainly would not be here today."
Cruse’s vision is that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies. Grief is a natural process, but some people need support to understand and cope with what can be a devastating experience. Cruse offers specialist website, telephone, email and face-to-face support for adults, children and young people.
Bereavement support for young people
Many children and young people experience the death of a parent, caregiver, sibling or grandparent. Even very young children can be deeply affected by the death of someone close. Children and young people react differently depending on their age and understanding but all should be supported to understand and express their grief.
Supporting families in the Armed Forces
Cruse understands that that those people who have lost a loved one whilst they were serving in the Armed Forces may have particular issues and experiences that can complicate the grieving process.
Early Intervention Project launches
The Early Intervention Project will create a new and innovative early intervention service for people living in England, who are in the first six months of their bereavment. The project is funded by the Department of Health.
Cruse will offer rapid specialist assessment by telephone and in the first phase, on-going telephone or email support sessions where appropriate.
