Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Watch Andy Langford, Cruse's Clinical Director, explain who we are and how we are supporting people during the coronavirus pandemic.
From our beginnings running clubs for widows from our founder's house in Kew, Cruse Bereavement Care has grown to be a charity with an international reputation.
Over the years, we have helped bereaved people in times of crisis, such as after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York and the Manchester Arena Bombings, and have expanded to support hundreds of thousands of people each year. Find out more about Cruse's history.
Our vision is that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies.
Our mission is to offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies and to enhance society’s care of bereaved people.
Our values: At Cruse Bereavement Care we are Responsive, Compassionate, Respectful, Supportive and Innovative.
