Cruse Bereavement Care in Leeds
Here at Leeds Cruse we provide free, confidential emotional support to anyone who has been affected by a bereavement, no matter how long ago or what the circumstances were. Our trained volunteers provide support to people over the age of 18 who are registered with a Leeds based GP and live in the Leeds area. Leeds Cruse is supported by over 50 trained volunteers who give their time to help people who are bereaved. Our goal is to provide somewhere to turn when somebody dies. Please contact us if we can help in any way.
You can contact us by phone or email. We may need to ask you for some information about your bereavement, including who has died and when. This is to make sure we are the best service to help you. After this initial contact, we offer an assessment, when a volunteer or member of staff will talk with you in more detail about your situation. This is usually done at one of our drop in sessions, which are held regularly. Our waiting list is currently around 6-8 weeks for a daytime office appointment, slightly longer for an evening appointment and 8 weeks + for a home visit (May 2019)
