Cruse Chief Executive Debbie Kerslake has announced that she is to retire after 10 years as CEO. Debbie said: "I have now worked for Cruse for 18 years, the last 10 years as CEO. Over that time we’ve achieved so much together, reaching out to even more bereaved people and now providing support to nearly half a million people each year. It was clear from my recent attendance at the international conference on contemporary grief and bereavement in Lisbon just how respected the name of Cruse is around the world.

At Cruse Bereavement Care we are shocked and saddened that so many people have died or been affected by major incidents recently - in Barcelona, at Finsbury Park, at Grenfell Tower, and in previous attacks at London Bridge and in Manchester. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with all those affected – those who are grieving, those who were injured, those who witnessed traumatic sights. The events may also have triggered memories for those bereaved in other situations.

Today the Government implemented significant changes to bereavement benefits received by UK families – changes which will mean 75% of all families with children are likely to be worse off financially. The cuts to benefits come into effect as new research reveals that two thirds of widowed parents are not financially prepared for bereavement, with around one in six widowed parents admitting that they had been forced to re-locate or move home as a result of their partner’s death.
