CRUSE Bristol and District

CRUSE provides bereavement support to any adult who needs it in our area. Most of us, at some time in our lives, will be faced with the death of someone we love or care very deeply about. When someone you love dies it can feel as though a piece of you has died too. But you don’t have to go through it alone.

They can support you through one of the most difficult experiences you will ever have to face through their telephone helpline, groups and one-to-one sessions.

Please explore their website which contains information and advice for bereaved people and those around them including family, friends and carers, employers and service providers.
