Geographical remit: 


Bereavement affects everyone at some point in their lives and its negative impact on our emotional, physical and mental health is well established. Whilst many people do not need specialist help, others do need support to enable them to understand and manage their grief. There is a wide range of responses to being bereaved and Cruse's services are there to ensure that these different needs can be met.

Cruse Bereavement Care was established in 1959 and is the largest national charity of its kind, each year more than 100,000 bereaved people contact us and more than 45,000 receive face-to-face support.

Cruse ensures that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies.


Deploying teams of specially trained volunteers, Cruse provides face-to-face support for as long as is required, group sessions, telephone and email support and advice, information and signposting to other related organisations, and training for businesses, charities and faith groups in bereavement awareness.

The Thames Valley Area of Cruse comprises 50 volunteers and is based in Bracknell.
