Campaigning for bereaved people | Cruse Bereavement Care

0808 808 1677

Cruse acts as the ‘voice of bereaved people’ speaking out on issues that impact on those who are bereaved. This can be anything from a government policy on bereavement benefits to how companies treat their bereaved customers. You can help us campaign for change through sharing your story, speaking to the media, giving feedback to a consultation or completing a survey and giving us your views.

Bereaved Customers First

Cruse Bereavement Care's Bereaved Customers First campaign aims to reduce the emotional burden bereaved people are facing when contacting businesses to tell them a loved one has died.  

A manifesto for bereaved people

Before the December 2019 general election we called on all political parties to agree a manifesto for bereaved people.  

Funeral Poverty

Cruse is a member of the Funeral Poverty Alliance, a network of over 50 organisations working against funeral poverty.

Bereavement in the workplace

When someone is bereaved it is vital that employers recognise the impact and provide appropriate support within the workplace.
