Surrey North Cruse Bereavement Care is committed to providing ongoing support for our clients during these difficult and challenging times but we are making adjustments to the way we work to protect our clients and our volunteers from the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus). Our main support method will, for the moment, be by telephone as we are discontinuing face-to-face support.
In most other respects, our services are running normally.
The NHS website is a good source for general advice on the coronavirus.

About Cruse Bereavement Care
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, whenever or however the death occurred.
This is a short video explaining our work:
We have been operating in the area for over 35 years and we cover the boroughs of Elmbridge, Runnymede, Spelthorne and Woking.
The Cruse Surrey North Branch's services include:
Face-to-face support sessions, either in your own home or at our meeting room in Chertsey.
Group sessions. Many bereaved people derive great comfort from meeting others in similar situations to themselves.
Telephone support and advice.
Support by email. This service provides a weekly email support exchange with a bereavement volunteer. Click here for more information, including how to access this service.
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 or at school.
The Cruse Surrey North Branch is supported by over 80 trained volunteers each giving their time to support people bereaved by death.
Our goal is to provide somewhere to turn when somebody dies. Please contact us if we can help in any way.
