Cruse Bereavement Care is here to support you after the death of someone close. If someone you know has died and you need to talk, call us on 0844 477 9400 or send an email.
Face-to-face and group support is delivered by trained bereavement support volunteers across the UK.
Bereaved through drugs or alcohol
Have you been bereaved through a loved one's drug or alcohol use? Could you help us create relevant, accessible information for people bereaved in this way? If so, why not share your experiences and ideas at our consultation workshops in London (16 June) and Birmingham (17 June)? You may also be interested in training to offer peer support to others bereaved through drug or alcohol use. Our next available drug and alcohol related bereavement training is in September.

Bereavement support for young people
Many children and young people experience the death of a parent, caregiver, sibling, friend or grandparent. Many of our local services offer support to children and young people. Our new website Hope Again is a safe place where young people who are facing grief can share their stories with others.
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.
Bereavement at work
For many employers, it can be difficult to know how to respond when an employee is bereaved, and what can be done to ensure that the impact on both the individual and the organisation is minimised. With one in ten people in the UK likely to be affected by bereavement at any one time, employers can benefit from planning ahead.
