How Cruse Buckinghamshire Can Help

The death of someone we love, who matters to us, is a devastating experience. We are faced with the painful and daunting task of coping with all that bereavement brings and with the challenge of finding a new sense of life and purpose. All of this takes time - nearly always longer than we think - and help of many kinds may be needed.

Come along to one of our Information Sessions as the 'First Steps' to finding out what support we offer and which suits your personal circumstances.

Each Cruse bereavement volunteer is chosen with great care and is also specially trained.
We offer support to children and young people.

Information can also be obtained from our Cruse Young Person website.

Coronavirus update. Following Government advice on Covid-19 and in accordance with instructions from Cruse Head Office, all face to face sessions, Bereavement social/support groups, closed bereavement groups are now suspended. We are able to offer telephone support at this time. 

If you need more support or would simply like more information please complete our enquiry form or if you prefer you can telephone us and leave a message on our answerphone and a Cruse volunteer will contact you as soon as possible.

Cruse Bucks operates in the Buckinghamshire Unitary Authority Area only and does not extend to operate within the area of Milton Keynes Unitary Authority.  Details of the local  bereavement support services can be obtained from Milton Keynes Council.
