Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham
Now celebrating their Ruby Anniversary, Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham seek to help children suffering from a recent bereavement by providing “Social Gatherings” where bereaved young people can meet and share stories and gain strength from peer support. As well as providing one to one support, giving the children a safe place to talk about their feeling following losing a loved one.
Who are Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham?
Cruse Bereavement Care help support children and young people suffering from the loss of a loved one. They provide free face to face counselling, given by experienced children’s workers,
giving them the tools to cope with their loss and move on in a positive way.
As well as providing one to one support, Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham also provide group therapy sessions where children can meet with others in a social environment, giving them a safe place to talk about their feeling following losing a loved one and to to realise they aren’t alone.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
Funding cuts have meant Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham, have had to scale back their services resulting in a long list of children waiting for their support. They have had to reduce the youth workers hours from 2 days a week to just 1.
LoveBrum’s funding would allow Cruse Bereavement Care- Birmingham, to recruit more Children and Young People bereavement support volunteers and provide the children with additional resources such are magazine subscriptions, an online support service. This will allow them to tailor their support to each child’s needs and ultimately help more children in Birmingham.
