Cruse Bereavement Care Coping with bereavement

Bereavement will be the most distressing experience we will ever face. Grief is what we feel when somebody we are close to dies. Everyone experiences grief differently and there is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve. Cruse is a national charity that provides advice, information and support to anyone who has been bereaved (children, young people and adults), whenever or however the death occurred. The service is provided by trained experienced volunteers and is confidential and free. Cruse offers: • Someone to talk to one-to-one if preferred, face-to-face or on the telephone. • Groups – many bereaved people find it helpful to talk to others in similar circumstances. • Education and information about many aspects of bereavement using publications and other sources of help and support. • Face-to-face support for children and young people.
