Lewis Leap and Cruse Scotland

Working together to develop support for bereaved families after a traumatic loss.

June 20, 2022

In the aftermath of a traumatic loss, lives of the bereaved are irreversibly changed. Some emotional states include shock, disbelief, isolation and utter turmoil. Cruse Scotland will work in partnership with Lewis Leap to expand their existing service to include support for family members, collectively and individually, in the early stages of their grief.

Cruse Scotland will look at the most current research and importantly, interview those with lived experience to develop a service that hears the stories and voices of those affected, to best support their grief needs. 

This service will be named after Lewis Johnson, who inspired and supported those around him.
