Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland

Who we are: 

Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland exists to promote the well-being of bereaved people in Scotland. We have 270 volunteers in local teams across Scotland who give 38,000 hours of their time each year.
Our Helpline: 0845 600 2227 received over 12,000 calls last year

What we offer: 

We seek to help anyone experiencing bereavement to understand their grief and cope with their loss. We work primarily through volunteers, providing free counselling services, group support and care to bereaved people. We also train and educate individuals and organisations who may in turn be able to contribute to the well-being of bereaved people.

At present our two volunteers in Dumfries are on ‘time out’. We are hoping to recruit and train some replacements soon and we are advertising with the local TSI/Volunteer Centre for this purpose.

When our local counselling services are active again, we will operate out of the Alzheimer Scotland office in 8 Gordon Street, Dumfries. In the interim we can still offer counselling services by phone or for those clients willing to travel to our facilities in Hamilton and/or Glasgow. Additionally, Clients can access our ‘Webchat’ service or e-mail via our website and of course contact us on our National Helpline even if they are already registered with us and awaiting counselling.
