Cruse Bereavement Support

Back to Support

Cruse is there for the bereaved, offering support and advice and helping to make sense of what is often a sad and desperate situation. Cruse is a national charity.

You can contact Cruse directly – no referral is required.

Their telephone helpline is run by trained bereavement volunteers, who offer emotional support to anyone affected by grief. Find out more including the hours on their helpline page.

You can find out if there is local group or one-to-one support in your area by entering your postcode on this page.

Their website has a range of resources to help you understand and manage grief in this section.

They also offer specialised support and resources to help you support children and young people dealing with grief on this page.

Cruse has a useful page explaining a number of practical things that need to be done in the days, weeks and months after someone dies. See their ‘What to do after someone dies’ page.

This support is free of charge.
