London Bridge attacks one year on - Some Cruse insight

3rd June 2018 marked the one year anniversary of the London Bridge attack. Cruse was heavily involved supporting survivors and family and friends. 

Cruse was contacted within 12 hours, and approximately 36 hours after the events unfolded, a number of Cruse Bereavement Volunteers were mobilised and provided support to those affected. Over the months that followed, many bereaved people availed themselves of our services, with some still getting support.   Cruse Bereavement Volunteers were drawn from our services in the South East, to deliver this much needed assistance. 

Andy Langford, Chief Operating Officer and major incident responder for Cruse, said “Our hearts just go out to people who have been affected, and it has been a privilege to provide support.

"It’s not uncommon to start to experience the emotional effects of such a traumatic event as the anniversary approaches. If you or someone you know is struggling after the London terror attacks last year, the NHS has a dedicated mental health service that can help, or of course you can call the Cruse National Helpline.”
