About Cruse Bereavement Care

Cruse Bereavement Care’s vision is that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies. Our Areas and Branches offer free and confidential services provided by trained volunteers.

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 will 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 may offer you a supportive call and send you some information about the grieving process and how we may be able to help you.  

* CORONA VIRUS UPDATE- We are continuing to provide the best service we can in these challenging times, so please contact us for information. Due to the current restrictions, we are only able to offer telephone support for the foreseeable future.


Normal Opening hours:  Please contact Cruse National helpline on 0808 808 1677 if you need to speak to someone urgently about your bereavement.


* PLEASE NOTE - Our Leeds office is currently closed, but we are all working from home. Please email us or call and leave a voicemail with your enquiry and someone will always respond.

You can call us on 0113 234 4150.   You will get through to a recorded message but please do leave a message with your name and contact number and someone will call you back as soon as possible.
