Welcome to Cruse Scotland

"We are Scotland's Bereavement Charity

 We are here to listen when you feel ready to talk"

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are able to offer telephone and video support. If you are a current client or on a waiting list someone will be in touch to discuss this with you.

Our helpline will remain open during the hours advertised above.






This blended learning course was developed by Cruse Bereavement Care Scotland (CBCS) in collaboration with NHS Health Scotland.  It builds on training developed by CBCS and is based around interviews with people who have been bereaved by suicide.

There are two components:

1. Completion of an e-learning module (estimated 2-4 hours study time).     Successful completion of the e-learning module is a pre-requisite for attending component 2.

2. Attendance at one of three face-to-face workshops, each designed for a different audience with a slightly different focus.
