The National Charity Cruse began in 1959 and the West Berkshire branch in 1987.
The name Cruse came from the Old Testament story in Kings 17. The Cruse, or flask of oil, was a sign of practical and continuing care for the widow of Zarapath.
Cruse gives support irrespective of race or belief, whatever the cause of death or length of time since bereavement.
Bereavement can affect us emotionally, physically, socially and in many practical areas of life, and can therefore have serious effects on individuals, families and communities.
We are here to help.
Our team of dedicated volunteers give endlessly to provide a service that is strictly confidential and is given without charge. We are always happy to welcome new volunteers, so if you are interested in finding out more about the ways in which you could help then please do not hesitate to contact us.
