If you represent a charitable Trust and Foundation, you may be interested in finding out more about Cruse Scotland’s work supporting adults, children and young people struggling to cope after a bereavement.
Our services are designed to ensure that those needing support receive the right help at the right time and include:
The difference your Trust or Foundation support will make
Bereavement support has never been more needed. In 2023, we received 11,869 calls to our freephone helpline from people struggling to cope with their grief exacerbated by the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic and cost-of-living crisis. Without intervention, unresolved and complicated grief can lead to a range of long-term mental and physical illnesses such as anxiety and depression.
We know from experience that our services have significant and long-lasting outcomes for bereaved people, including:
Our range of counselling, listening and advice services are designed to improve mental health and activate an individual’s own coping strategies.
Our community-based groups can help adults who feel lonely and isolated meet others in informal settings to share their grief experiences and issues.
Bereaved people can learn new coping strategies and receive advice on how they can call on families, neighbours and local people to build stronger local support networks for themselves.
If you would like to know more about the difference your Trust or Foundation can make to bereaved people across Scotland, please get in touch and we look forward to speaking with you.
