Coronavirus (COVID-19) 

Due to the current situation concerning coronavirus (COVID-19), all our support is now provided over the telephone, until it is safe to return to normal working practices. The Craven & Bradford Office is closed but we can access messages remotely and will call people back. The Craven & Bradford Area Helpline number is 01756 797799.

In addition to the dedicated referrals telephone number we now have a dedicated email for clients seeking bereavement support.

We will continue to review the situation in line with the government’s advice.

If you are bereaved and self-isolating

If you rely on support from others while dealing with a bereavement – whether that’s family, friends, being at work – and you are struggling being on your own then our national helpline is open - call 0808 808 1677.

The Cruse national helpline is open Monday-Friday 9.30-5pm (excluding bank holidays), with extended hours on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings, when we’re open until 8pm.
