Welcome to Cruse Bereavement Care in Lambeth. We hope you will find information here about what we do, how you can get support you need, and how you may be able to support us.

Cruse Bereavement Care is a national charity that exists to offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies. It aims to enhance society’s care of bereaved people. 

Set up in 2009, Cruse Lambeth branch offers support to adults within the London borough of Lambeth (or whose GP practice is in the borough). We offer one-to-one and group support with trained Bereavement Volunteers. We are also able to offer advice and support to parents or others affected by a death in the family where there are children, and a service especially for children and young people (under 18).   

The huge amount of administrative work involved is currently carried out by a part time administrators with support from our volunteers. 

We liaise with many other organisations in Lambeth who provide services, either directly or indirectly to bereaved people.
