Leave Cruse a legacy

What could your legacy be?

By including a legacy to Cruse you can ensure that those you leave behind and future generations can continue to rely on Cruse Bereavement Care.

As the UK’s leading bereavement charity we exist to support adults, children and young people who are grieving the death of someone close. Your legacy can help us offer support to people in need face-to-face or through our helplines. Your gift can be used to train and empower bereaved young people to support each other through our youth website Hope Again. It can help us continue to improve our services for groups with specific needs – such as those bereaved through suicide or drugs and alcohol. Legacies help us campaign for a fair deal for all bereaved people, and to research the best ways to help and support those in need.

Our ambitious plans can only be realised with the support of those who understand the value of our work. Please remember us in your Will and help us make sure all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies.

Gifts left to charity are exempt from tax, and very generous gifts can help you reduce the amount of inheritance tax your relatives will have to pay. 




Join us raising funds by taking part in challenges and events, getting involved in your local area, or becoming a partner organisation.
