Cruse Bereavement Care Hertfordshire
We need to train volunteers to support bereaved children and adults living in Hertfordshire so the volunteers can continue to help those affected by a bereavement during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About this cause
Cruse Bereavement Care Hertfordshire exists to provide advice and support to any child or adult living in the county who has been bereaved and is grieving for someone who has died. The manner and time of the death do not matter to Cruse so the bereaved person may seek our help straight after a death has happened or twenty years later. The service is provided by volunteers who are trained by us.
How this cause brings people in the community together
From the start of the pandemic, our organisation has rapidly changed to offering telephone and online support to bereaved people in the community. This support reduces feelings of isolation and enhances emotional wellbeing in the community. Bereavement volunteers come from all backgrounds and have a variety of lived experience, but come together to help bereaved people in their communities.
