Walk and talk group

Many of our problems can become clearer when we put one foot in front of the other. Walking in a group magnifies the power of this therapy. We have launched a new ‘Walk and Talk Group’, in conjunction with Bexley Walking for Health, for adults of all ages who have lost a loved one, which meets every Tuesday at 10am at the Stables car park.

All our walks are led by friendly Cruse Volunteers who are also walk leaders. The walks provide a great opportunity to enjoy walking in some beautiful green space at Danson Park, and there will be refreshments and a chat at the end of each walk in one of the beautiful rooms in the Danson House. Walks are suitable for all abilities and provide an opportunity to meet other people with similar life experiences and walk in the fresh air.  Anyone can join – it’s free, fun and friendly!

About Us

The death of someone close can be shattering. Everyone experiences grief differently; there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. How we react will be influenced by many different things, including our age and personality, our cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.

Cruse is a national charity that provides advice, information and support to anyone who has been bereaved, whenever or however the death occurred. The service is provided by trained, experienced volunteers and is confidential and free.

Cruse has been in Bexley since 1984 and in Bromley since 2011, and provides free bereavement support and counselling to anyone living in the area, irrespective of age, race, gender, culture, religion, ethnicity and disability.

Our Bereavement Volunteers who provide this support service receive rigorous and demanding bereavement training. In accordance with best practice, every volunteer is allocated to a trained supervisor so that quality of performance is regularly monitored and expertise enhanced. Volunteers continually receive in-house training, elements of which are obligatory such as Child Protection Procedures, and this training ensures provision of a quality service.
