Cruse Bereavement Care is the leading national charity for bereaved people in the UK. They offer support, advice, and information to children, young people, and adults when someone dies, and they work to enhance society’s care of bereaved people.

Cruse’s services are provided by a network of 5,000 trained volunteers, and are both confidential and free to use. Cruse also provides training and consultancy for external organisations and for those who may encounter bereaved people in the course of their work.

Cruse can offer a safe, youth-friendly space where young people can work through their grief in their own time and own way accompanied by a trained and experienced volunteer who will work individually with the young person over a period of 6-8 weekly sessions. There are also a number of leaflets and publications available to help children and young people.
