Call our free helpline

We offer support to anyone in the Cannock, Lichfield and Tamworth districts who is struggling to deal with the consequences of bereavement.

We offer a range of confidential services free of charge:

  • Information and advice are available from our telephone helpline.
  • One-to-one bereavement support. One of our volunteers will visit you in your home or at one of our designated meeting places to provide individual support.
  • Bereavement Help Points (see below). We bring together small groups of people for them to meet and get support from each other and our facilitators.
  • Telephone support. This is similar to one-to-one support (a fixed-length regular support session) but conducted over the phone.
  • Specialist support for children and young people, which can take place either at home or at school.

You can contact us on our helpline: 01543 433479
