We will continue to review the situation in line with 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.
