We have all, sadly, experienced the loss of loved ones, friends and colleagues during our lives and especially over the last two years. Grief manifests itself in many ways and how we deal with it differs greatly from person to person.  It can often be after the funeral when the support you may have had has dropped away as people get on with their lives, that you need the most help.  If you are struggling and feel alone in your grief then Cruse is a charity set up to specifically deal with bereavement.  It offers support to people across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Cruse volunteers are trained to handle all aspects of bereavement and offer emotional support to anyone affected by grief and going through one of the most painful times in life.  They offer a range of services from their free helpline to offering one-to-one support with a grief specialist.   Their website @ https://www.cruse.org.uk/ has lots of information.

A good place to start if you are suffering is to call the FREE helpline on 0808 808 1677.

For members in Scotland they can access the same services @ https://www.crusescotland.org.uk/  

Their FREE helpline number is  0808 802 6161
