Our vision is that people bereaved suddenly get help at a time of darkness to move to a brighter day.

We help when someone has died suddenly, or too soon in their life, because of

  • a sudden medical reason (including COVID-19), or terminal illness
  • injuries, caused by something that happened
  • suicide

Our role is to help people during the first ten weeks following a sudden bereavement. You can call us from day one, onwards.

At Sudden, your named case worker helps to:
  • Support you with a warm, listening ear
  • Give advice on bereavement issues
  • Get help you need, including emotional, practical, psychological, or legal

We also help communities and professionals to help suddenly bereaved people, better.
