Cruse supports research aimed at developing our understanding of grief and loss and what can help bereaved people. Researchers and academics often need to speak to bereaved people as part of their research. The following studies have been approved by the Cruse Policy Group. If you are interested in taking part in any of them, please get in touch with the researchers directly.
Are you a young person who has experienced the death of someone you were close to?
Researchers want to find out what talking about death is like for young people who are bereaved. They hope that by finding out about the experiences of young people who have been bereaved we might be able do more to help young people in the future. They are looking for young people aged 12-21 (who were between 12 and 18 when the person you were close to died) and who experienced bereavement at least six months ago and not longer than five years ago. The research involves having a face-to-face conversation with a researcher.
