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.

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.

In Peterborough, Cruse have monthly Wellbeing Walks in Central Park and Ferry Meadows, where you can join Cruse Bereavement Volunteers, Ramblers Wellbeing Walk Leaders, and others like yourself who have experienced bereavement for a gentle (or longer) walk in a lovely setting, followed by a stop in a cafe where you can purchase refreshments if you like. If you are interested, please email [email protected] asking for more information and leave your contact details, and someone will ring you back.

This support is free of charge.

If you go on a Wellbeing Walk, you may purchase refreshments at a cafe at the end.
