Cruse UK

The death of someone close can be shattering.

Everyone experiences grief differently. There is no ‘normal’ or ‘right’ way to grieve.

How we react will be influenced by many different things including our age, personality, cultural background and religious beliefs, our previous experiences of bereavement, our circumstances and how we cope with loss.

Cruse Bereavement Care offers advice, information and support to bereaved people of all ages, however or whenever the death occurred.We offer services across the Tees Valley and Durham area.
