CRUSE: Bereavement Counselling     
A talk by Julia Davies

Cruse Bereavement Care exists to promote the well-being of bereaved people and to enable anyone bereaved by death to understand their grief and cope with their loss.

At the James Braid Society's June 2010 meeting one of Cruse's counsellors, Julia Davies, presented an inspiring and thought provoking explanation of the work of this national charity, explaining how it provides support, information, advice, education and training services.

As a result of Julia's well received talk, the James Braid Society made a unanimous decision to donate £100 to Cruse.

 

Founded in 1959 in Richmond-upon-Thames, the charity has 135 branches spread across England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man.

Apart from a core of paid staff –mainly at central office – services to bereaved clients are provided by trained and skilled volunteers. Some branches have paid administrators, often part-time.

Cruse develops and delivers all its own training, which is based on its highly respected foundation course for bereavement volunteers.  This trainingcan be accredited independently by OCNW if students so wish.

There are opportunities for continuing professional development with modules on specialist areas of bereavement.

Cruse exists to promote the well being of bereaved people and to enable anyone bereaved by death to understand their grief and cope with their loss.

Services are free to bereaved people, but the organisation relies uponon donations to fund its work.
