CruseChat is here to help 9am - 9pm Monday - Friday.

If you are struggling with bereavement and would like to talk to someone about how you are feeling please click on the CruseChat link in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. With CruseChat you can speak to a bereavement counsellor about how you are feeling right now.

You can remain anonymous or provide your name, whichever you prefer.

CruseChat is a free service and is available Monday-Friday, 9am-9pm to anyone over the age of 18. CruseChat is a third party service provided for Cruse by GriefChat, using specially trained bereavement counsellors. They can direct you to other Cruse services but are not part of Cruse, so if your query concerns a service you are currently receiving, or you want to refer yourself for other Cruse help, please contact your Local Service or call our Freephone Helpline on 0808 808 1677.
