About Us

Our mission is to offer support, advice and information
to children, young people and adults when someone dies

Cruse Bereavement Care’s vision is that all bereaved people have somewhere to turn when someone dies.

Our mission is to offer support, advice and information to children, young people and adults when someone dies, and to enhance society’s care of bereaved people

We aim to promote the well-being of anyone bereaved by death and to enable bereaved people to understand their grief and cope with their loss

    • With volunteers working across the Tees Valley and Durham Area, we aim to offer a quality information and support service to any bereaved person, regardless of age, gender, class, culture, disability, ethnic origin or background
    • We offer bereavement support to children and young people either through one-to-one sessions with specialist child bereavement volunteers or via the national website for young people, designed by young people www.hopeagain.org.uk
    • We also offer support to the Military Family. We understand that people who have lost a loved one while they are serving in the Armed Forces may have particular issues that complicate the grieving process.
    • We have highly trained volunteers who can support the bereaved after a sudden and traumatic death: suicide, homicide, road traffic accident.
