Due to funding pressures, the Sudden service is now closed.
If you are bereaved and in crisis, please use the resources on our website or call The Samaritans on 116 123. Please contact your GP directly if you require any immediate support and in case of an emergency, please call 999.
A sudden death is devastating for children and their families. There is no time to prepare or say goodbye. Often, the person who dies is a parent or sibling, leaving behind a bereft family.
