Cruse National Helpline

The Cruse National Helpline is staffed by trained bereavement volunteers who can offer a listening ear and emotional support to anyone who has been affected by a bereavement. All calls are answered by trained Cruse volunteers who are there to help you talk things through.  They can also help you to find your local Cruse branch, or signpost you to other services and useful sources of information.

Coronovirus (Covid-19) Update 17 March 2020

Due to the current advice from Government and Cruse Central, York and North Yorkshire branch will be changing the way we deliver our services for the foreseeable future.
We will no longer be offering face to face support, but offering telephone only support. This is to keep the waiting list down and to try and provide the best possible, but limited service, under very difficult circumstances. 

We will post a further update as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding and we hope you all stay safe and well ❤️

Coronavirus: dealing with bereavement and grief

During the global coronavirus pandemic we are facing a tragic loss of life, often under very difficult circumstances.

Bereaved people may have to deal with increased trauma, and may be cut off from some of their usual support network. Those who are already struggling with bereavement, or whose relatives or friends die through other causes will also be affected.

We have put together these resources to share how bereavement and grief may be affected by this pandemic. It covers some of the different situations and emotions bereaved people may have to deal with. We will be adding to and updating this information as the situation develops.
