Cruse Bereavement Care was founded in 1959 and is a national charity providing free advice, information and support to adults, young people and children who are struggling to cope with grief arising from bereavement, when or however the death occurred.

  • Telephone support sessions
  • Information about the many aspects of bereavement as well as practical help and advice and signposting to a wide range of other support options.
  • Special support for children and young people, either at home, school or a designated meeting room.

Our goal is to provide somewhere to turn when somebody dies.  Please contact us if we can help in any way.
