The death of someone close can be shattering. Everyone experiences grief differently; there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. How we react will be influenced by many different things, including our age and personality, our cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.
Cruse is a national charity that provides advice, information and support to anyone who has been bereaved, whenever or however the death occurred. The service is provided by trained, experienced volunteers and is confidential and free.
Cruse has been in Bexley since 1984 and in Bromley since 2011, and provides free bereavement support and counselling to anyone living in the area, irrespective of age, race, gender, culture, religion, ethnicity and disability.
Our Bereavement Volunteers who provide this support service receive rigorous and demanding bereavement training. In accordance with best practice, every volunteer is allocated to a trained supervisor so that quality of performance is regularly monitored and expertise enhanced. Volunteers continually receive in-house training, elements of which are obligatory such as Child Protection Procedures, and this training ensures provision of a quality service.
