Situation

So many people have contacted CRY wondering if there are others they could talk to who have suffered similarly. No matter how much professional support is offered (either medical or therapeutic), sometimes just speaking to someone who has been through a similar experience, or reading their personal stories, helps the most. CRY’s Founder, Alison Cox, developed the CRY Bereavement Support Programme with this in mind.

Solution

The aim of running this course is so that bereaved families are able to receive the help of trained bereavement supporters who can empathise with them. Once the counselling course is complete, our qualified bereavement supporters volunteer their time to offer telephone support to others who have been affected by young sudden cardiac death.
