Help after a sudden bereavement

Helping you to support bereaved people

Help us to help more bereaved people

From day one, onwards

Our vision is that people bereaved suddenly get help at a time of darkness to move to a brighter day.

We help when someone has died suddenly, or too soon in their life, because of

  • a sudden medical reason (including COVID-19), or terminal illness
  • injuries, caused by something that happened
  • suicide

We help people most in the early days and weeks, but call us any time.

At Sudden, your named case worker helps to:

  • Support you with a warm, listening ear
  • Give advice on bereavement issues
  • Get help you need, including emotional, practical, psychological, or legal

We also help communities and professionals to help suddenly bereaved people, better.
