Loss and Bereavement Awareness

We all come into contact with bereaved people during the course of our working lives – be it clients, customers or colleagues – and even the most confident person can find it hard to know what to say.

For more than 50 years Cruse has been committed to helping bereaved people understand their loss and cope with their grief. We draw on this experience to develop our training. Cruse is able to provide training to organisations across the public, private and voluntary sectors. We are consulted by all relevant government departments and by other organisations whose policies affect bereaved people.

Cruse Bereavement Care Training and Consultancy offers a range of courses, tailored to your organisations needs and learning objectives:
