Coping at Christmas
Christmas can be a painful time if you've been bereaved, whether it’s your first year without a person who has died, or you lost someone long ago. Cruse is here to help throughout the Christmas season. Our helpline will be open for normal hours across the whole period, including Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. You can also read more about what can help in our article on Coping at Christmas.
Supporting families in the Armed Forces
Cruse can provide information and support to Military families following bereavement, including practical information, dealing with the media and what support the bereaved can expect from the Armed Forces and others following a death in Service.
Cruse is delighted to be expanding its work with the Military Family, following an award of over half a million pounds by the Ministry of Defence. For more information please see our news story or
