We are delighted and honoured that Her Majesty The Queen is our Royal Patron. Our patrons are ambassadors for Cruse and support the work of our charity.

The Cruse Board of Trustees of a charity have legal responsibility for our charity’s management and administration. Our trustees are all volunteers who give up their time to help us run Cruse, and have a broad range of experience and expertise.

Our Chief Executive and directors are responsible for the day-to-day running of Cruse.

The Cruse Council is our consultative body. The council represents the interests of volunteers and clients and includes representatives from the regions, and clients with experience of each type of service we offer, including those for children and young people. 

We have nearly 5000 volunteers who provide support to bereaved people and take on many other roles within Cruse. Read some of their stories.
