We have three Cruse Branches in West Sussex:
- Chichester & Arun Branch
- Crawley, Horsham and Mid-Sussex Branch
- Worthing & District Branch.
There are around 90 trained Bereavement Volunteers within the branches who give their time freely to Cruse. Each volunteer will have attended a minimum of 60 hrs professional training and attends regular ongoing training. Some volunteers have been specially trained to work with children and young people aged between 5 yrs - 18 yrs; this is always done with parental consent.
All volunteers are supported by a Supervisor who they see on a regular basis.
The branches work independently under the umbrella of Cruse West Sussex Area which in turn is part of Cruse South East Region which is overseen by our National Office based in London. See map below for our area detail.
Although we do not charge for our support services, it costs about £70k per annum to offer our services across West Sussex. We rely heavily on donations from past clients to enable us to help other bereaved people in the future. If you feel you are able to make a donation after receiving a service from us, no matter how small, we will be very grateful.
