Bereavement support for your employee

If your employee needs to speak to someone about their grief, they can call or email the Cruse freephone national helpline on 0808 808 1677. The helpline is open Monday - Friday, 9.30am - 5pm, and until 8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Alternatively, they may wish to contact their local Cruse service for face-to-face support. Whilst employers are frequently keen to offer as much help as possible to their teams, it is important that the bereaved person themselves feel ready to talk. For this reason we can't make appointments for people unless they contact us personally.
