Charity description

Cruse Bereavement Care Cumbria logo
Our team of dedicated volunteers provides free bereavement support to those in need. Cruse Bereavement Care Cumbria needs £30,000 a year to provide this free service, run entirely by unpaid volunteers. It costs £300 to train a new Bereavement Volunteer and £167 per year to keep them updated with ongoing training. All donations will allow us to continue our work, and to train up more Bereavement Volunteers, enabling us to provide this valuable service to Cumbria's bereaved.
  • We primarily work directly with bereaved clients on a one to one basis, giving clients time and space to work through their bereavement.
  • We work with anyone who has been bereaved irrespective of when the bereavement happened.
  • As we cover the whole of Cumbria we also offer telephone support.
  • We have a dedicated helpline which is manned four times a week.
  • We also offer:
  • Group work
  • Children and young people 
  • Family work.
Your kind donation will help us continue to provide this free service to those in need. For example £6 will fund a helpline call from a bereaved person and £12 will pay for useful leaflets for 5 bereaved people.

Thank you for visiting our page on MyDonate. You can also help us by  becoming a "Friend of Cruse". By donating a small amount of money each year to support our vital work. By giving a regular contribution of just £12 per year (or whatever amount you would like to donate) - your support will allow us to plan for the future and continue to deliver bereavement services to those who need them across Cumbria.
